A variational approach for the deformation of a saturated porous solid. A second-gradient theory extending Terzaghi's effective stress principle

Abstract : The principle of virtual power is used to derive the equilibrium field equations of a porous solid saturated with a fluid, including second density-gradient effects; the intention is the elucidation and extension of the effective stress principle of Terzaghi and Fillunger. In the context of a first density-gradient theory for a saturated solid we interpret the porewater pressure as a Lagrange multiplier in the expression for the deformation energy, assuring that the saturation constraint is verified. We prove that this saturation pressure is distributed among the constituents according to their respective volume fraction (Delesse law) only if they are both tru density-preserving.
