In order to analyze precisely not only the elastoplastic deformation phenomenon of saturated particle assembly such as soils, grains, powdered and tablet medicines or three dimensional cellular materials, but also the frictional sliding phenomenon between saturated particle assembly and other bodies, a particle assembly-water coupled finite element program, that incorporates both the subloading surface and the subloading-friction models, is developed. Subsequently, simulations of the compaction behavior of saturated particle assembly under strain rate control are performed. It is revealed by the numerical experiment adopting the finite element program that the frictional sliding behavior of the contact boundary influences both the deformation behavior and the pore water flow behavior in the saturated particle assembly.
