3) Title: Recent Advances in Numerical Methods and Simulations in Statics and Dynamics of Structures

The main purpose of the Section “Recent Advances in Numerical Methods and Simulations in Statics and Dynamics of Structures” is the presentation of new methods to analyse of safety and reliability of the structures under extreme loads as the earthquake and climatic loads (temperature, wind, snow, rain and others), terroristic attack (aircraft, missile, blast, fire and others) or technology accident (explosion, high temperature and others). The nonlinear material and geometric behaviour of structures is necessary consider during extreme loads. The risk of 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 the 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 optimisation 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 experiment tests, modelling and simulations of the structure failure under extreme loads using the deterministic or probabilistic assessment are welcome.

7) Title: 6th Symposium on Computational Modelling and Experimental Assessment of Transport Processes in Porous Building Materials

Organizer: Oldrich Zmeskal, Faculty of Chemistry, Brno University of Technology, Purkynova 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, 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:
•    Theoretical models of transport phenomena

28) Title: Geomatics Approaches for environmental surveying and modelling

Organizers: Mangiameli Michele, Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture (DICAR), University of Catania, Viale Andrea Doria, 6, 95125 Catania (Italy),  Melita Donato, Department of Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering (DIEEI), University of Catania, Viale Andrea Doria, 6, 95125 Catania (Italy),  Muscato Giovanni, Department of Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering (DIEEI), University of Catania, Viale Andrea Doria, 6, 95125 Catania (Italy),  Mussumeci Giuseppe, Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture (DICAR), University
of Catania, Viale Andrea Doria, 6, 95125 Catania (Italy)


This Symposium is dedicated to the geomatics approaches used for surveying, monitoring and modeling the territory, both with classical techniques and innovative technologies. Geomatics approaches involve the use of the latest generation of laser scanners, UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or UGV(Unmanned Ground Vehicle)and satellite technologies. Particular attention will be given to the use of free and open source information technologies (GIS software, DBMS, photogrammetry, etc.) for the management of data acquired in the field. This session will allow attendees to review and share knowledge and experience about environmental monitoring and modelling, reinforcing the cooperation between applied mathematics, engineering, environmental science and remote sensing.


29) Title: Numerical mathematics and High Performance Computing in Engineering and Environmental Sciences

Organizer: Martin Cermak, Department of Mathematics at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava, 17. listopadu 2172/15, 708 00 Ostrava – Poruba, Czech Republic


The symposium, organized by Associated Professor Martin Cermak (Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Civil Engineering), is focused on numerical methods in connection with high-performance computing in all areas of engineering and environmental sciences, further on sharing experiences, and initiating new research cooperation. Among others, this symposium will cover the following scientific fields: computational structural mechanics (elasticity, plasticity, damage, contact problems, etc.), computational fluid dynamics (Stokes, Navier-Stokes, Darcy, Brinkman, etc.), numerical simulation of DEM (transport processes, processing technologies, particle size distributions, etc.), modeling and simulation in the emergency and crisis management (floods, air pollutions, traffic load) as well as crash tests. It will also focus on scalable algorithms and advanced computational techniques such as domain decomposition and multigrid methods, parallel and hybrid programming, reliable and robust solution methods, etc.
We aim to organize the symposium, which offers exciting talks, presents new ideas, as well as reveals the beauty of numerical mathematics in connection with high-performance computing. Also, human aspects are essential.
