Sources of the center of dilatation and center of compression types in the Biot model

  • L. A. Molotkov
  • A. V. Bakulin


For a homogeneous isotropic model of porous Biot media, wave fields of spherically symmetric point sources are determined. The conditions under which a point source of the center of compression type can be replaced by two sources, one of which is a pair of oppositely directed forces and the other is a center of radially directed tangential forces, are obtained. Bibliography: 9 titles.
