The paper presents a theory to account for concurrent pore pressure generation and dissipation mechanisms around the advancing tip of a standpipe piezometer. A solution is based on the theory of a point dislocation moving within a saturated porous medium. In the study, a simplified analysis assuming linear behavior of the individual components is illustrated to yield a complex nonlinear response where true interaction between the components is enforced. This emphasizes the complexity of this rudimentary physical system prior to the incorporation of complex material behavior. The details of the theory are presented and the findings are discussed.
