In this paper the classic coupled thermoporoelasticity model of hollow and solid cylinders under radial symmetric loading condition (r, t) is considered. A full analytical method is used and an exact unique solution of the classic coupled equations is presented. The thermal and pressure boundary conditions, the body force, the heat source, and the injected volume rate per unit volume of a distribute water source are considered in the most general forms, and no limiting assumption is used. This generality allows simulation of various applicable problems.
