The recently established modified mixture theory for fluid-filled porous materials is applied to two steady state boundary value problems; also, how the newly developed theory provides more general solution than Biot’s theory is examined. The velocity profiles in steady state boundary value problems are found to depend on the ratio of a characteristic length of the microstructure to a characteristic length defined by the boundary conditions. As opposed to Biot’s theory, the zero fluid velocity condition on the boundary are satisfied and the existence of a non-Darcy flow closer to the boundary are shown.
