Abstract:

Use of singularity elements to model pore-pressures in the vicinity of free-draining loaded surfaces, immediately after application of loads at these surfaces is discussed. One-dimensional consolidation is considered. Comparison of numerical results with the exact solution shows that use of specially designed elements approaching singularity may succeed in reducing the error in pore-pressures. Author
