5.8.1 Constant Isotropic Diffusivity
When the permeability is isotropic, For this material model, is constant. This assumption is only true when strains are small. Note that the user must specify , where is the solute diffusivity in free solution, since a solute cannot diffuse through the biphasic-solute mixture faster than in free solution.
