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.

Olivier Coussy was born on November 3,in Marseille, France. 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. In the late s and s, Dr. Modelling and predicting how porous media deform when subjected toexternal actions and physical phenomena, including the effect ofsaturating fluids, are of importance to the understanding ofgeophysics and civil engineering including soil and rock mechanicsand petroleum engineeringas well as in newer areas such asbiomechanics and agricultural engineering.

In this monograph, Dr. Coussy worked in various fields of Applied Mechanics, such as limit analysis and yield design, wave propagation, dynamics of cracked materials, and dynamics of structures; before shaping and defining the field of poromechanics.

The Rankine-Hugoniot Jump Condition. Averaged Fluid Pressure and Capillary Pressure. 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.

Coussy was a dedicated educator, an inspiring instructor and a generous mentor. Mechanics and Physics of Porous 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.

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. Over the years, Dr. Zinszner, Editions Technip,a small number of researchers in different countries had recognized the potential impact of M.

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.

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. 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. Skickas inom vardagar.

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 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.

Olivier Coussy’s achievements

Contents 1 Deformation and Kinematics Mass Balance. Olivier Coussy, the prominent scientist and engineer who developed the fundamentals of poromechanics theory that were transformational in many applications of civil, environmental and petroleum engineering, bioengineering and sustainable development of materials and structures, died January 15, at his home in Vanves, close to Paris, France.

His groundbreaking approach was quickly recognized by the community as the lingua franca of poromechanics. He was one of the founders of the Cooussy Conference on Poromechanics in Poromechanics Olivier Coussy No preview available – 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 poromechanicss.

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 calcium leaching and chloride diffusion, and so on.

Coussy uses the language of thermodynamics t Selected pages Page 3. The theory provides a seamless extension both of classical continuum mechanics theory of solids to porous materials, and of M.
