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

Email: zmeskal@fch.vutbr.cz

 

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
•    Computer simulation tools
•    Material parameters and their assessment
•    Model verification techniques
•    Environmental effects on building structures
•    Risk analysis
•    Service life assessment studies

•    Sustainable development and eco-efficient materials
•    Other applications in building science and building practice
•    Layered nanoadditives

Many physical phenomena in science and engineering are modelled by nonlinear differential equations. There is no doubt that Lie symmetry methods are one of the most effective set of techniques to find exact solutions of such nonlinear differential equations. They have been used by several scientists and applied to various nonlinear models in physics, biology, engineering, economics, etc.
The Lie symmetry methods identify and extend the concept of symmetry, produce an effective method of symmetry applications in difficult situations, give accurate statement of problems and in many cases show a possible way for finding their solutions.
The aim of this mini-symposium is to emphasize the applications of Lie symmetry methods to search for exact solutions of nonlinear models and to show recent progress of theoretic tools in Lie symmetry methods related to the study of nonlinear differential equations.

Organizer: Rimantas Kačianauskas, Department of Applied Mechanics, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Saulėtekio al. 11, LT-10223 Vilnius, Lithuania

Email: rimantas.kacianauskas@vgtu.lt

The particles-based computational methods identified by Lagrangian particle methods have been extensively developed during last two decades. The ability to describe the collective motion of solid objects by considering the behaviours of individual constituent is distinguished feature of the particle-based methods. The discrete-element method (DEM) initially aimed to simulate granular materials is probably the most popular method of this type applied in many fields of engineering. Recently various approaches and modelling techniques known as molecular dynamics (MD), Brownian dynamics (BD) and/or similar method are used to form constitutive equations on different length and time scales. Various solids, fluid flows, multi-physical fiends, chemical processes and even biological objects may be described by various kinds of particle-particle and particle-field interactions. Managing of particle methods is still a challenge even for advanced computers, therefore, novel computational and visualisation technologies including the parallel and distributed computing are expected. Practical applications in traditional industries, energy and environmental as well as biological sectors are expected  
 
Hence, we aim to use this mini-symposium as an opportunity to exchange the ideas on particle-based methods bridging different scales and disciplines. 
 
A few topics are listed below but other contributions are equally welcome:
  • conceptual developments  in the DEM and other alternative approaches;
  • simulation of granular flows;
  • deformation  and fracture of solids;
  • particles in fluids and multi-physical environment; 
  • modelling of mixtures and composites;
  • modelling of biomaterials;
  • novel interaction models of particles interaction,
  • parallel computing;
  • computational and visualisation technologies;
  • industrial applications.

Call for papers:

It is widely acknowledged that in engineering and financial systems, advanced nonlinear control techniques are needed so as to achieve stabilization and functionng according to improved performance indicators. Complex engineering systems include primarily industrial production processes, robotic systems, electric power systems, transportation systems while they can be also extended towards biomedical systems, as well as towards cyber-physical systems which comprise communication networks and sensor dynamics in the related state-space descriptions. On the other side, models of economics systems which were initially developed to describe the dynamics of business cycles and macroeconomic indexes (such as GDP, accumulation of capital, employment, commodities prices, option prices, or risk of default)‘ become more complicated when individual financial entities (such as companies, funds management organisations,banks and loan management authorities) get interconnected and interact in their decision making processes. It is apparent that to harness the complicated dynamics of the above noted engineering and financial systems, the design of the related control schemes has to advance towards elaborated control techniques (such as those based on global or approximate linearization concepts, on Lyapunov stability theory or on distributed parameter systems theory). The proposed Special Session aims at highlighting on recent advances in nonlinear control of engineering and economic systems and welcomes contributions based on related findings.

Prospective authors are requested to submit their articles, until the 21st of June 2020 to:

The theoretical, numerical and computational analysis of dynamical systems and their applications to the analysis of problems coming from civil, mechanical, electrical, etc. engineering and related subject fields, their formal verification and practical validation of relevant approaches constitute the unifying idea of this symposium, whose significance should be seen just in the confrontation of different approaches and intensification of
multidisciplinary cooperation of experts (mathematicians, physicists, engineers, ...). Leaving nice model cases and seeing the real-world problems, we come to serious difficulties a) in the formal analysis of existence, uniqueness, stability, etc. of solutions, b) in the convergence of sequences of approximate solutions, as well as c) in the design of sufficiently robust and inexpensive algorithms for direct, sensitivity and inverse problems. The unification approaches addressed to the continuous and discrete analysis, namely to the study of integral, differential, difference, etc. equations from engineering practice, both deterministic and stochastic ones, including their formulation on time scales, is needed: the theoretical problems include e.g. i) stability and observability of dynamical systems on time scales, their qualitative and quantitative analysis, ii) filtration of inner states of such systems and iii) identification of systems of orthogonal functions.

From antiquity several natural disasters harmed and destroyed the built heritage of world countries. With particular reference to earthquakes, large consequences in terms of loss of human lives and destruction of properties, which ultimately affected the natural economy, occurred. An earthquake cannot be predicted and prevented, but the preparedness of structures to resist seismic forces becomes a pressing need in the field of Seismic Engineering. Some initiatives were taken into a lot of countries towards reduction of seismic risk in existing buildings. Since numerous decades, significant research efforts were also dedicated to the retrofit of existing buildings. Nevertheless, the subject is still under development and standardization of analysis methods and constructive practices are needed. In this mini-symposium a comprehensive review of methods and techniques used for seismic retrofitting of existing buildings are discussed. Therefore, the session contents will be multidisciplinary and will provide to researchers and designers new perspectives in the field of Seismic Engineering. In particular, the traditional and most advanced analysis techniques to examine the seismic behaviour of existing constructions (reinforced concrete, masonry, steel and timber) are illustrated and debated. Furthermore, the progresses of research on anti-seismic devices and techniques for local, upgrading and retrofitting seismic interventions on existing structures are predominantly examined.
