Consisting of a document collection specializing in mechanics and the physics of materials, structures and geomaterials, the Olivier Coussy workspace pays tribute to a prominent figure in research on Fluid and Solid Mechanics and on Thermodynamics. An engineer, scientist and teacher at École des Ponts ParisTech, Olivier Coussy (1953-2010) was the author or co-author of 80 publications and five books, including Mechanics of Porous Continua, Wiley & sons (1995). His accomplishments were rewarded by the Jean Mandel Prize (1985), the Plumey Prize (1998), and the Biot Medal (2003), of which he became the first recipient for his “exceptional contributions to the mechanics of porous media”. Director of the Navier laboratory from 2003, he was also Research Director First-Class at CNRS and a Knight of the National Order of Merit.
This collection is accessible to all researchers, PhD candidates and interns at the Navier research unit. Loans are registered at the La Source library reception on presentation of a reader’s card (École des Ponts badge or card provided on application to Romain Boistel (firstname.lastname@example.org). All researchers, PhD candidates or interns at the laboratory can borrow up to 30 documents for 180 days.
The Olivier Coussy project-space
Accessible by reservation only, the Olivier Coussy project-space is intended primarily for researchers, PhD candidates and interns at the Navier laboratory. Students in the civil and structural engineering and mechanical engineering and materials science departments can also use it, subject to reservation.
