Abstract

In this paper, an analytical solution for the response of a rigid cylinder embedded in a full-space poroelastic medium subjected to a dynamic lateral load is derived. The problem is idealised as a two-dimensional problem. The solution is obtained using Biot’s theory for acoustic waves. In this solution, the displacements of the solid skeleton and the pore pressure are expressed in terms of three scalar potentials. These potential correspond to the wave velocities of the slow and fast compressional wave and to the shear wave. The governing equation for the dynamic motion is expressed in the frequency domain using Fourier transformation and the potentials are shown to be given by Holmholtz equations.
