Abstract
This paper highlights a computational framework for the numerical analysis of saturated soil-structure interaction problems. The variational equations of linear momentum and mass balance are obtained for the large deformation case. These equations are solved using the Particle Finite Element Method. The paper concludes with a benchmark test and the analysis of a penetration test.
