Biot Poroelasticity

Application ID: 483


The Poroelasticity interface couples Darcy's law and solid mechanics to assess deformation of porous media that results from fluid withdrawals.

The model builds on top of the Terzaghi Compaction example. Results from Terzaghi compaction and Biot poroelasticity analyses are compared to each other and are a good match to published analyses.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
