A simple mathematical formula is proposed to predict the fluid damping effects in poroelastic materials. Biot’s poroelasticity equations are solved to obtain the response of poroelastic materials undergoing harmonic tension-compression and bending deformation. Complex moduli of poroelastic material are explored from the response functions on basis of mathematical models. It is shown that the effects of material parameters, geometrical parameters, and flow boundary conditions on the fluid damping are predicted by simple mathematical formulas. Numerical results are presented and compared with those of other researchers.
