Organizer: prof. Oldřich Zmeškal, Ph.D., Faculty of Chemistry, Brno, University of Technology, Purkyňova 118, 612 00 Brno, Czech Republic
Transport and accumulation of heat, moisture, chemical substances, and momentum are phenomena which affect buildings and their inbuilt materials over their whole lifetime period.
Their satisfactory description requires primarily a choice of proper physical and mathematical models because the transport mechanisms are coupled. The computational implementation of mathematical models is another essential factor involving an application of appropriate methods of numerical solution. The computer simulation tools cannot be utilized properly without knowledge of a variety of transport and storage material parameters, microstructural and structural parameters, which have to be determined experimentally in a wide range of field quantities, such as temperature, moisture content, and concentration of a particular chemical compound. The applied models are also supposed to be verified using critical experiments, in order to assess their overall quality. Therefore, in practical applications the computational modeling and experimental assessment of transport processes cannot be separated without a risk of significant departure from the physical reality.
The symposium brings together physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and engineers working in the field of transport processes in building materials and materials engineering. The main topics include but are not limited to:

Organizers: Juraj Králik, CSc., prof. Ing. Eva Kormaníková, Ph.D. and prof. Ing. Martin Krejsa, Ph.D
The main purpose of the Symposium “Recent Advances in Numerical Methods and Simulations in Statics and Dynamics of Structures” is the presentation of new methods to analyze of safety and reliability of the structures under extreme loads as the earthquake and climatic loads (temperature, wind, snow, and others), terroristic attack (aircraft, missile, blast, fire and others) or technology accident (explosion, fire, high temperature, overpressure, impact load and others). The nonlinear material and geometric behavior of structures is necessary consider during extreme loads. The risk the structure collapse is determined by the model and resistance uncertainties. The deterministic and probabilistic analysis of the structure failure during the extreme loading can be used. The probabilistic assessment gives us the most complex analysis of the acceptable level of risk. Recently, the theories of probability and statistics and reliability have provided the bases for modern structural design codes and specifications.
The main objectives of the Mini-symposium are developing:
- The advanced methods and simulations of structure failure under extreme loads,
- The nonlinear material and geometric model of structures and the effective numerical methods,
- The advances in the soil-base-structure or soil-fluid-structure interaction analysis under seismic loads,
- The experimental tests and the fluid simulation of the blast or extreme wind impact on structures with various shape,
- The optimization of the new composite materials or structure shape to have the higher safety of the structure under impact of extreme loads,
- The simulation probabilistic methods and the stochastic finite elements to probabilistic analysis of the structure resistance due to extreme loads,
- The risk analysis of the structure failure using the fragility curves of the structural elements for various type of accident or extreme loads,
- The reliability-based optimization procedures to consider of the effects of uncertainty by means of reliability, the applications involving optimal structural design for stochastic linear and nonlinear statics and dynamics.
- The experience from the experimental tests, modelling and simulations of the structure failure under extreme loads using the deterministic or probabilistic assessment were welcome.

Since the pioneer paper of Daniel Bernoulli “Essai d'une nouvelle analyze de la mortalité causée par la petite vérole” dated of 1766, where he showed that inoculation against the virus would increase the life expectancy, huge developments and progress have been made. The most serious issue with a pandemic outbreak such as SARS-CoV-2 is its rapidly growing transmission rate across the world. Mathematical modeling and simulation allow for rapid assessment. They have the potential to trace and predict the epidemic trajectory under different scenarios but also to assess the impact of social distancing, use of face masks, etc..

Nonlinear control is almost ubiquitous is all technological developments and actually it is indispensable in robotics and mechatronics, in autonomous vehicles and intelligent transportation systems, in electric power generation, traction and propulsion systems, in the smart electricity grid and power electronics, in industrial processes, in pharmaceutical industries and in biomedical applications, in agriculture, constructions and mining, in satellites, aerospace systems and telecommunications, in financial systems and industrial production scheduling and in numerous other tasks and activities aiming at improving the quality of living and human safety.
Main approaches to nonlinear control for complex dynamical systems are: (i) control and estimation with global linearization techniques (e.g. based on differential flatness theory or Lie algebra), (ii) control and estimation with approximate linearization techniques (e.g. based on local linear models which are obtained through Taylor series expansion), (iii) control and estimation based on Lyapunov stability theory (e.g. energy-based control, adaptive control and adaptive identification techniques), (iv) control based on other optimization concepts (e.g. sliding-mode control and nonlinear model predictive control) (v) nonlinear control addressed to systems under specific state-space forms (e.g. backstepping control and control implemented in cascading loops). The above noted techniques fall within the scope of this special session. Moreover, results on nonlinear control methods which are applied directly on the initial model of the system and are free of diffeomorphisms, changes of state variables and state-space-description transformations will be given particular attention and will be prioritized for inclusion in this special session.
Prospective authors are requested to submit their articles, until the 21st of June 2023 to the organizers of this symposium.
25) Title: Recent advances in shape-sensing and structural health monitoring approaches
Organizers: Marco Gherlone, Marco Esposito, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Politecnico di Torino, Italy
Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is a well-recognized general approach for the assessment of structural integrity, with several industrial applications. SHM is typically based on input data coming from a net of sensors and on the processing the data in order to provide damage characterization. A recently proposed important technology for SHM is the so-called shape-sensing, i.e., the evaluation of the deformed shape of a structure starting from some discrete strain measurements. Once the displacement field is known, the strain
and stress fields can be reconstructed too, constituting the basis for the application of failure criteria and damage assessment. A further output of shape-sensing can also be the reconstruction of internal and external loads experienced by the structure.
This Minisymposium is focused on bringing together the latest advances in shape-sensing and SHM approachessuitable for an effective control and health monitoring of modern aerospace, automotive, marine and civilian structures.
The topics include but are not limited to:
- Shape sensing approaches
- inverse Finite Element Method
- Load reconstruction methods
- Damage detection methods
- Sensor optimization methods and studies
