Abstract

The classic Mandel solution associated with the well-known Mandel-Cryer effect is re-examined. Using Biot theory of poroelasticity, the solution of the Mandel problem is extended to include material transverse isotropy, as well as the compressibility of the pore fluid and the solid constituents of the soil-rock skeleton.
