An analytical solution is derived for the time-dependent flow and deformation coupling of a saturated isotropic homogeneous incompressible poroelastic media within a two-dimensional (2D) finite domain due to a point source at some arbitrary position. In this study, the pore pressure field is assumed to conform to the second type of boundary conditions. Boundary conditions of the displacement field are chosen with care to match the appropriate finite sine and cosine transforms and simplify the resulting solution. It is found that the analytical solution is always independent of the Poisson’s ratio. The detailed solutions are given for the case of a periodic point source with zero pressure derivatives on the boundaries and for an imposed pressure derivative on the lower edge in the absence of a source. The presented analytical solutions are highly applicable for calibrating numerical codes, and meanwhile they can be used to further investigate the transient behavior of flow and deformation coupling induced by fluid withdrawal within a 2D finite poroelastic media.
