A theoretical investigation on the transmission of wave induced pressures into a permeable sea bottom has been performed. Assuming that the soil water is compressible, while the grain skeleton is assumed rigid, the resulting theoretical model describes an effective mechanism by which the soil permeability affects the pressure transmission.
