About the Author

Philippe Coussot is a researcher at the Laboratoire Navier and Director of the Education and Research Chair for the Saint-Gobain-Ecole des Ponts ParisTech. His studies concern the physical and mechanical properties of pasty or granular materials. He has already four books to his name and boasts an impressive list of honours, including the Maurice Couette Award of the French Society of Rheology (2009), the 2007 Award of the French magazine La Recherche (2007), the Schoemaker Award of the International Association of Hydraulic Research (1996).


From the book reviews:“This exceptionally clear textbook on rheology by Philippe Coussot represents a basic complement for undergraduate and graduate courses of materials physics and chemistry for both the degrees of Materials Science and Materials Engineering. The author owes the outstanding cross-disciplinary quality of the book to his personal experience in applied research related to civil engineering. … a good teacher can easily expand finding in any case the appropriate seed in this excellent book.” (Giorgio Benedek, Il Nuovo Saggiatore, en.sif.it, Vol. 31 (1-2), 2015)
