Exploiting form invariance of a class of elastic - plastic constitutive relations for drained and undrained deformation makes it possible to compare predictions for localization under these limiting conditions. Results are shown to depend strongly on poroelastic constants reflecting the compressibility of solid and fluid constituents and parameters describing inelastic volume strain and the dependence of the yield stress in shear on mean normal stress.
