Theory of poroelastic beams with axial diffusion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

31 Scopus citations


The governing equations for a transversely isotropic poroelastic rod subjected to axial or transverse loads are formulated for the case of microgeometries which permit fluid motion in the axial direction only. The quasi-static problem of beam bending is analysed and series solutions are found for normal loadings with various mechanical and diffusion boundary conditions. The unique features of the time-dependent behavior of such beams are pointed out.
