9780470849200: Poromechanics

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 engineering), as well as in newer areas such as biomechanics and agricultural engineering.

Starting from the highly successful First Edition, Coussy has completely re-written Mechanics of Porous Continua/Poromechanics to include:

  • New material for:
    • 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 researcher in civil engineering, petroleum engineering, geophysics, biomechanics and material science.

From the Back Cover:

Modelling and predicting the mechanical behaviour of fluid-infiltrated porous media is vital to geophysics, petroleum and civil engineering, as well as to newer disciplines such as biomechanics and agricultural engineering. This book, based on the successful Mechanics of Porous Continua, has been revised and updated to strengthen the basics of this emerging field of 'Poromechanics'. Serving as a self-contained guide, Poromechanics provides a unified approach to the fundamental concepts of continuum poromechanics and to the coupling of the deformation of porous continua with various physical processes.

This book:

  • Describes deformation and stress and the thermodynamics of fluid-infiltrated porous continua.
  • Details the standard problems of saturated poroelasticity.
  • Analyses unsaturated poroelastic media, the effects of capillary pressure and of the surface energy between components.
  • Discusses non-line ar and inelastic behaviours.
  • Deals with penetration fronts and surfaces of discontinuity.
  • Addresses the mechanical behaviour of chemically active porous materials.
  • Gives some insights on microporomechanics.
  • Offers advanced analyses at the end of each chapter.

Poromechanics will appeal to postgraduates students and researchers in disciplines as varied as biomechanics, geophysics, soil and rock mechanics, agricultural engineering and materials science in a broad sense. This book is also a valuable resource for advanced courses on poromechanics.
