In this issue, we have assembled a small collection of recent research work by national and international experts on poromechanics following in the footsteps of Olivier Coussy's formulations and vision, all of whom had first-hand experience working with Dr. Coussy personally. Early results of the work published in this special issue were presented at the MPPS 2011—Symposium on Mechanics and Physics of Porous Solids: A Tribute to Late Professor Olivier Coussy, held on April 18–20, 2011, at the École des Ponts Paris Tech, Champs-sur-Marne, France.
