Description

Solutions for Biot's Poroelastic Theory in Key Engineering Fields: Theory and Applications provides solutions related to soil-structure interactions based on a poroelasticity theory, including moving loads such as trains. This book provides the commonly used methods for solving Biot’s formulations and conclusions on fully-saturated soil dynamics. It presents various solution methods used in Biot’s theory, such as the integral transformation method, the wave potential decomposition method, the finite element, and the 2.5D finite element method. It is suitable for graduate students, researchers and engineers who are interested in the soil-structure interaction problem with Biot’s theory, as well as engineers in several subdisciplines.

Key Features

  • Focuses on the structure-saturated soil interactions based on Biot’s theory
  • Provides solutions (analytical and numerical) related to soil-structure interactions based on a poroelasticity theory, including moving loads such as trains
  • Includes common and novel solution methods for Biot’s formulation

Readership
