A thin layer element method is formulated to compute the dynamic response of submerged soil. The formulation is based on Biot's equation describing the dynamic behavior of fluid-saturated elasto-porous medium. The dynamic response of submerged soil is computed for various cases by using the developed formulation. The effects of submerged conditions are examined for submerged soil deposits with a water level at and above the ground surface. It is found that both submerged conditions and water body above the ground surface can considerably affect the dynamic response of soil deposits.
