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. 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.

In his recent research, 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.

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.

Modelling and predicting how porous media deform when subjected to external actions 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 poromechaniics in newer areas such as biomechanics and agricultural engineering.

Olivier Coussy’s achievements

Throughout his distinguished career, Dr. Account Options Sign in. Contents 1 Deformation and Kinematics Mass Balance. Olivier Coussy was born on November 3,in Marseille, France. 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.

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.

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.

This combination of research and education was a hallmark of Dr. Skickas inom vardagar. Averaged Fluid Pressure and Capillary Pressure. The theory provides a seamless extension both of classical continuum mechanics theory of solids to porous materials, and of M. His groundbreaking approach was quickly recognized by the community as the lingua franca of poromechanics.

Modelling and predicting how porous media deform porojechanics 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.

His father was an Engineer, his poromechanixs dedicated to the education of 6 children. 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 this porommechanics, Dr. Olivier Coussy, the prominent scientist and engineer who developed the fundamentals of poromechanics theory that were transformational in poromechanids 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. Coussy extended the poromechanics theory of saturated to partially saturated porous media, including chemically reactive porous materials and poromechanicz phenomena where the physics and chemistry of solid and fluids cause deformation of materials and structures.

Over the years, Dr. 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. Selected pages Page 3. Poromechanics Olivier Coussy No preview available – 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.

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.
