Closed-form solutions are presented for some one-dimensional problems involving the dynamic response of saturated porous media. These solutions are useful for validating finite element codes for dynamic consolidation of soil. While they consider only elasticity and small strains, they do allow a check on the concurrent wave transmission and consolidation processes.
