Bulletin of National University of Uzbekistan: Mathematics and Natural Sciences


The form for representing the equation of motion for porous media in terms of velocities, stresses, and pressure as a symmetric hyperbolic Friedrechs system has been obtained. A two-dimensional initial- boundary value problem in a half-space is considered, the excitation source is a point source. For its numerical solution, an explicit predictor-corrector scheme is used. A series of numerical calculations for a test model of media is presented.
