Abstract

The dynamic behavior of seepage fl ows has not been well investigated experimentally or analytically. In this paper, fi rstly, the governing equations for dynamic seepage are numerically solved with the fi nite volume method and the dynamic behavior is investigated. The numerical results reveal the highly unsteady behavior of the pore water pressure and the seepage velocity, which cannot be shown by the conventional steady seepage analysis. Secondly, the coupled problem of the dynamic seepage and the deformation of elastic porous media is solved with a similar method, whereby the influence of the dynamic seepage behavior on the one-dimensional deformation of solids is investigated.
