Consolidation of a porous multilayered subsoil undergoing large deformation

Gwidon Szefer, Marian Mikołajek
In the paper the process of deformation of an elastic porous skeleton at finite strains and the associated transport of fluid through the pores is considered. Undergoing large deformations these coupled interaction phenomena require skilful analysis. Numerical results for a three-layered subsoil resting on a rigid foundation under different permeability conditions in the uni-axial state of strains are given.
