This chapter reviews the main features and capabilities of a general analytical model for saturated soil media. It is shown that the procedure is extremely effective in dealing with saturated porous soil media models since (1) the fluid phase is always much stiffer than the solid phase, and therefore would impose too stringent time step restrictions for accuracy if dealt with explicitly; and (2) the solid phase exhibits non-linear behaviour and would impose too many stiffness assemblies and factorizations if dealt with purely implicitly.
