Abstract:

A program for the IBM 7040 computer was developed to provide the stress and displacement fields for an elastic porous material under conditions of plane strain with rectangular boundaries and force or displacement controlled loading. The program uses a lumped parameter model of the material and solves the problem by an iterative technique. Options are provided for solving drained cases, in which volume change occurs and no pore pressures develop, and undrained cases, in which no volume change occurs and pore pressures do develop. The output includes a listing of force, stress, and displacement fields and a graphical array of normalized stress fields for total stresses, effective stresses, and pore pressures. The results of a sample problem are shown. Author
