A field theory is presented for the study of swelling in soft tissue structures that are modeled as poroelastic materials. As a first approximation, soft tissues are assumed to be linear isotropic materials undergoing infinitesimal strains. Material properties are identified that are necessary for the solution of initial boundary value problems where… CONTINUE READING
