In the present paper, we investigate a model for propagating progressive waves associated with the voids within the framework of a linear theory of porous media. Owing to the use of lighter materials in modern buildings and noise concerns in the environment, such models for progressive waves are of much interest to the building industry. The analysis of such waves is also of interest in acoustic microscopy where the identification of material defects is of paramount importance to the industry and medicine. Our analysis is based on the strong ellipticity of the poroelastic materials. We illustrate the model of progressive wave propagation for isotropic and transversely isotropic porous materials. We also study the propagation of harmonic plane waves in porous materials including the thermal effect.
