This chapter is devoted to indentation testing of liquid saturated materials, which, for the sake of simplicity, are assumed to be isotropic and undergoing small deformations. In particular, analytical solutions are presented for two types of indenters (cylindrical and paraboloidal) and for two kinds of loading protocols (creep and load-relaxation).
