Using the Heaviside operator, a single partial differential equation is obtained for the space‐time variation of the pore pressure in two adjacent soil layers undergoing simultaneous consolidation. A closed form expression for the solution to the problem is given as a generalized Fourier series. The coordinate functions of the series are the eigenfunctions of the composite medium obtained computationally through the application of the extended Galerkin method.
