Two problems, a borehole subject to a non-hydrostatic far-field stress and a pressurized crack, are examined within the framework of Biot's theory of poroelasticity. The significance of the coupled diffusion-deformation theory is demonstrated, and the implications of these effects in rock mechanics applications are discussed.
