The paper reports on the homogenization based modelling of fluid saturated poroelastic materials containing locally controlable piezoelectric (PZ) actuators. This option provides metamaterial properties which enable to convert the electric power into the fluid transport due to the peristaltic deformation wave induced by the propagating voltage wave. A quasi-linear PZ-poroelastic material model is proposed to respect dependence of the effective medium parameters on the deformation at the microstructure (pore) level. Due to the sensitivity analysis of the homogenized coefficient, the two-scale modelling avoids any need to update the local microconfigurations. Numerical studies has been performed as the proof of the concept.
