General Theory of Three‐Dimensional Consolidation

- M. Biot
- Mathematics
- 1 February 1941

The settlement of soils under load is caused by a phenomenon called consolidation, whose mechanism is known to be in many cases identical with the process of squeezing water out of an elasticporous… Expand

Theory of Propagation of Elastic Waves in a Fluid‐Saturated Porous Solid. I. Low‐Frequency Range

- M. Biot
- Materials Science
- 1 March 1956

A theory is developed for the propagation of stress waves in a porous elastic solid containing compressible viscous fluid. The emphasis of the present treatment is on materials where fluid and solid… Expand

MECHANICS OF DEFORMATION AND ACOUSTIC PROPAGATION IN POROUS MEDIA

- M. Biot
- Physics
- 1 April 1962

A unified treatment of the mechanics of deformation and acoustic propagation in porous media is presented, and some new results and generalizations are derived. The writer's earlier theory of… Expand

Theory of Propagation of Elastic Waves in a Fluid-Saturated Porous Solid. II. Higher Frequency Range

- M. Biot
- Materials Science
- 1 March 1956

The theory of propagation of stress waves in a porous elastic solid developed in Part I for the low‐frequency range is extended to higher frequencies. The breakdown of Poiseuille flow beyond the… Expand

Thermoelasticity and Irreversible Thermodynamics

- M. Biot
- Physics
- 1 March 1956

A unified treatment is presented of thermoelasticity by application and further developments of the methods of irreversible thermodynamics. The concept of generalized free energy introduced in a… Expand

THEORY OF ELASTICITY AND CONSOLIDATION FOR A POROUS ANISOTROPIC SOLID

- M. Biot
- Physics
- 1 February 1955

The author's previous theory of elasticity and consolidation for isotropic materials [J. Appl. Phys. 12, 155–164 (1941)] is extended to the general case of anisotropy. The method of derivation is… Expand

Mechanics of Incremental Deformation

- M. Biot, D. C. Drucker
- Mathematics
- 1 December 1965

This book embodies an approach to non-linear elasticity which marks a fundamental departure from classical and current trends. The basic theory was first published between the years 1934 and 1940 in… Expand

Generalized Theory of Acoustic Propagation in Porous Dissipative Media

- M. Biot
- Mathematics
- 1 September 1962

The theory of acoustic propagation in porous media is extended to include anisotropy,viscoelasticity, and solid dissipation. A more refined analysis of the relative motion of the fluid in the pores… Expand

Surface instability of rubber in compression

- M. Biot
- Materials Science
- 1 March 1963

The previously derived expressions for the incremental elastic coefficients of an isotropic medium under initial stress are applied to rubbertype elasticity. As a corollary an exact theory is… Expand
