Abstract: Finite deformation responses of fluid-saturated geological media with thermoviscoplastic solid constituent are evaluated using finite element methods. The coupled nonlinear governing equations are derived from the balance laws and the Clausius-Duhem inequality. The developed finite element methodologies are tested for one-dimensional consolidation and nuclear waste disposal models.
