An axiomatic method is used to derive governing equations of isothermal mechanics of two-phase porous media. The first and second axioms of continuum are formulated in order to define the continuum approach to the problem. A dimensionless number is introduced to simplify the general equations and to obtain the equations of Darcian mechanics. Several aspects of the method and the results are discussed.
