The fully coupled thermo/hydro/mechanical response of a fluid saturated porous sphere subject to a pressure stress pulse on the outer boundary is considered. A full analytical method is developed and an exact unique solution of the coupled equations is presented. This generality allows us to simulate a variety of practical problems.
