The Biot porelastic coefficient defines the compressibility of sand grains, and will influence some of the calculations in ResInsight.
The Biot coefficient can be defined in three ways:
These settings are controlled from the Property Editor when a Geomechanical Case is selected. To use Biot coefficients for each element, perform the following steps:
The state of an active Biot coefficient is indicated in the info box in upper right coner in the 3D view. This will make sure the Biot coefficient information is availalbe when a snapshot is produced.
