Abstract

The problems of selecting a reasonable generation model and a reasonable generation-dissipation model of pore water pressure and determining the coefficient of permeability and the coefficient of volumetric strain in the course of pore water pressure generation-dissipation are crucial in the calculation of seismic pore water pressure. These problems are investigated theoretically and experimentally in this paper based on the concepts of transient pore pressure with connection to the practically possible calculating conditions, so as to improve the reliability of the current seismic effective stress analysing method.

Some Key Problems in Calculating Seismic Pore Water Pressure

St. Louis, Missouri

The problems of selecting a reasonable generation model and a reasonable generation-dissipation model of pore water pressure and determining the coefficient of permeability and the coefficient of volumetric strain in the course of pore water pressure generation-dissipation are crucial in the calculation of seismic pore water pressure. These problems are investigated theoretically and experimentally in this paper based on the concepts of transient pore pressure with connection to the practically possible calculating conditions, so as to improve the reliability of the current seismic effective stress analysing method.
