The theory of homogenization of differential equations has become an open field of research in several areas of the exact sciences and has proved to be a powerful tool for understanding the global behavior of heterogeneous materials. Despite knowing that the deduction of Darcy’s law through the Navier-Stokes equations has been debated for deca...

In engineering practice, loading varies with time. However, the classical one-dimensional theory of consolidation assumes the stress increase is instantaneously applied. Many approaches to the problem of time-dependent loading have been proposed over the years, from approximate methods to full developments of differential equations. The paper presents a...
