Mechanics of stratified anisotropic poroelastic media |

From (1), I find that

for undrained boundary conditions. Thus, I find again that

where is the confining pressure. Thus, the scalar coefficient is determined immediately and given by

Alternatively, I could say that

I have now determined the physical/mechanical significance of all the coefficients in the poroelastic matrix (1). These results are as general as possible without considering poroelastic symmetries that have less than orthotropic symmetry, while also taking advantage of my assumption that I do typically know the three directions of the principal axes of symmetry.
