Abstract
This paper describes a computational framework for the numerical analysis of quasi-static soil-structure insertion problems in water saturated media. The Particle Finite Element Method is used to solve the linear momentum and mass balance equations at large strains. Solid-fluid interaction is described by a simplified Biot formulation using pore pressure and skeleton displacements as basic field variables. The robustness and accuracy of the proposal is numerically demonstrated presenting results...
