Formulación del Problema de Consolidación no Lineal por el Método de Elementos Finitos

Carlos Aguirre, Héctor Jesen, Isaac Flores


The settlement in foundations under primary consolidation is usually solved by mean of Terzaghi' s one dimensional flow theory.
The problem is transient and non-linear type which makes appropiate to use a finite element algorithm tosohie it. This work, based on Biot's theory presents a variational approach wich include the initial value problem in the associated functional considering non linear laws and the temporal dependent of the problem.
