Abstract

The scaled boundary finite element method caters well for soil-structure interaction problems, but the formulation does not cater for the presence of changing pore pressures with time, body loads and tractions. A detailed formulation is presented in this paper to consider the general 2D analysis case for modelling coupled consolidation, accounting for body forces and surface tractions in both the bounded and unbounded media. The advantages of this method compared to conventional methods are also explained in this paper.
