This paper presents a simple procedure for modifying the dynamic coupled soil-pore fluid equations in a manner which allows a stable and efficient staggered solution procedure to be used. The solution method is simpler than an alternative suggested by Park and has a direct physical interpretation. This stabilized procedure is efficient in numerical time domain analysis of soil-pore fluid occurring in earthquake and consolidation problems. Numerical examples of one and two dimensional saturated poroelastic media demonstrate the procedure.
