Modelling and predicting how porous media cosusy when subjected to external poromcehanics and physical phenomena, including the effect of saturating fluids, are of importance to the understanding of geophysics and civil engineering including soil and rock mechanics and petroleum engineeringas well as in newer areas such as biomechanics and agricultural engineering.
Partially saturated porous media Reactive porous media Macroscopic electrical effects A single theoretical framework to the subject to explain theinterdisciplinary nature of the subject Exercises at the end of each chapter to aid understanding The unified approach taken by this text makes it a valuableaddition to the bookshelf of every PhD student and researcher incivil engineering, petroleum engineering, geophysics, biomechanicsand material science.
In this monograph, Dr. Mechanics and Physics of Poromecanics Solids addresses the mechanics and physics of deformable porous materials whose porous space is filled by one or several fluid mixtures interacting with the solid matrix. Coussy extended the poromechanics theory of saturated to partially saturated porous media, including chemically reactive porous materials and other phenomena where the physics and chemistry of solid and fluids cause deformation of materials and structures. All this led the way for poromechanics to open up a whole new field of applications in chemomechanics and durability mechanics problems of materials and structures.
Olivier Coussy’s achievements
This left a lasting impact on all his students and associates; be it in the class room, on the drawing board in his office or in the 5 books and more than scholarly papers he authored and co-authored. For his contributions, Dr.

Over the next 25 years, in three monographs he laid the foundation for and advanced many engineering application of what became to be known as the Biot-Coussy theory of poromechanics.

The theory provides a seamless extension both of classical continuum mechanics theory of solids to porous materials, and of M.
6th Biot Conference on Poromechanics –
Coussy was a dedicated educator, an inspiring instructor and a generous mentor. His father was an Engineer, his mother dedicated to the education of 6 children.
Coussy returned to the very foundations of the thermodynamics approach of poromechanics, in advancing a theory that distinguishes energy and entropy contributions from the solid, the fluid and the interfaces.
In his most recent seminal works, this new framework was key to solving many puzzles past and future, be it hardening plasticity for unsaturated porous materials; confined phase transitions in porous media freezing materials, in-pore crystallization of salt ; or adsorption-induced swelling of coal for Carbon sequestration applications.
Coussy uses the language of thermodynamics t Liquid Mark A Miodownik Inbunden. Contents 1 Deformation and Kinematics Mass Balance. Many of these scholarly contributions were driven by the need for the development of predictive engineering models for large scale engineering applications, such as early-age concrete behavior, drying shrinkage of concrete, swelling of clay, front propagation in poromecyanics leaching and chloride diffusion, and so on.
Olivier Coussy was born on November 3,in Marseille, France. For this new set of challenging engineering problems, poromechanics provides the host theory to formulate the macroscopic constitutive equations of partially liquid-saturated porous materials; while the physics of interfaces, informed by Molecular Dynamics simulations of adsorption phenomena in nano- and micropores, provides a means to analyze and quantify the multiscale effects of interface energy and interface tensions on macroscopic deformation.

In his recent research, Dr. Poromecanics recognized that the development of the vast field of engineering applications of poromechanics still lay ahead; and required a comprehensive macroscopic theory of the mechanics and physics of porous materials.

Coussy worked in various fields of Applied Mechanics, such as limit analysis and yield design, wave propagation, dynamics of cracked potomechanics, and dynamics of structures; before shaping and defining the field of poromechanics. This combination of research and education was a hallmark of Dr. Partially saturated porous media Reactive porous media Macroscopic electrical effects A single theoretical framework to the subject to explain the interdisciplinary nature of the subject Exercises at the end of each chapter to aid understanding The unified approach taken by this text makes it a valuable addition to the bookshelf of every PhD student and porokechanics in civil engineering, petroleum engineering, geophysics, biomechanics and material science.
Coussy developed a consistent thermodynamics theory of poromechanics, by considering porous continua, at the macroscopic scale of engineering applications, as open thermodynamic systems in which the addition of one or several fluid phases changes the energy and entropy balance of the solid system.
Throughout his distinguished career, Dr. He was one of the founders of the Biot Conference on Poromechanics in Over the years, Dr.
