Organizers: Amirul Khan, School of Civil Engineering, University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9JT, UK

Email: A.Khan@leeds.ac.uk

We propose a symposium that seeks to delve into the profound intersection of machine learning and numerical algorithms as applied to solving differential equations. Differential equations are foundational in the scientific and engineering domains, and their effective solution is crucial for understanding complex systems. Machine learning techniques have demonstrated their potential to reshape how these equations are approached and analysed.

This symposium will provide a platform for researchers, scholars, and experts in the fields of mathematics, computer science, and engineering to explore the evolving relationship between artificial neural networks (ANN) and numerical algorithms, particularly in the context of solving partial differential equations (PDEs). We encourage the submission of academic papers that investigate this multifaceted connection and its implications for advancing the fields of science and engineering.

The symposium will centre its discussions around three pivotal areas where machine learning is revolutionizing the landscape of PDE research: (Brunton and Kutz https://doi.org/10.48550/arXiv.2303.17078)

1. Discovery and Coarse-Grained Approximations: Presenting groundbreaking work on the discovery of new governing PDEs for complex natural and engineered systems, coupled with the development of effective coarse-grained approximations driven by machine learning algorithms.

2. Effective Coordinate Systems and Reduced-Order Models:Delving into the intricate methodology of creating efficient coordinate systems and reduced-order models, guided by machine learning, to enhance the analysis of PDEs in scientific and engineering contexts.

3. Solution Operators and Enhanced Numerical Algorithms:Examining the novel approaches to representing solution operators and the optimization of traditional numerical algorithms through machine learning integration, resulting in more efficient and precise problem-solving.

We anticipate this symposium to serve as a scholarly platform, where contributions will encompass significant advancements, ongoing challenges, and potential avenues for further research and development in the field of machine learning and numerical algorithms applied to differential equations.

12) Title: Title: 10 th Symposium on Computational Modelling and Experimental Assessment of Transport Processes in Porous Building Materials
Organizer: prof. Oldřich Zmeškal, Ph.D., Faculty of Chemistry, Brno, University of Technology, Purkyňova 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, 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:

  • 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
  • High-temperature applications

The complexity, nonlinearities and high-dimensionality of several dynamical systems requires the application of elaborated nonlinear control, estimation and fault diagnosis methods about them. Stabilization and control of the dynamics of such systems has to be addressed with the use of advanced linearization concepts, optimality principles and adaptive estimation procedures. 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). In parallel to control, missing or intermittent information from sensors has to be compensated with the use of advanced filtering methods. Finally, reliable functioning under changing operating conditions has to be supported by condition monitoring and fault diagnosis schemes.

The new Special Session on ”Advances in nonlinear control, filtering and fault diagnosis” will outline (i) recent findings in nonlinear control for complex dynamical systems, (ii) progress in nonlinear stochastic estimation methods aiming at the reconstruction of missing sensory information and at the identification of unknown dynamics, (iii) progress in fault detection and isolation techniques for these systems. Topics of importance are, but are not limited to: (a) global and approximate linearization control methods, nonlinear optimal control, adaptive and robust control, (b) nonlinear Kalman Filtering, nonlinear observers and nonlinear identification, (c) statistical fault diagnosis for early faults finding in nonlinear dynamical systems.

Prospective authors are requested to submit their articles, until the 30th of June 2024

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.

We organize this session of 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.

The COVID19 pandemic has highlighted the relevance of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulation in the context of the development of strategies for control, prevention and improvement of public health. The applications of CFD simulations are of significant importance for the optimization of control and prevention strategies in order to cope with these public health challenges. The use of the CFD solvers makes it possible to optimize the design of healthcare environments, evaluating the dispersion of pathogens and contributing to the implementation of effective preventive measures. In the context of epidemics, it facilitates the planning of management strategies, anticipating areas or conditions at risk and evaluating the effectiveness of prevention measures. Furthermore, CFD simulation is an essential tool for evaluating the effectiveness of personal protection devices and for designing more efficient medical devices. It also offers an innovative perspective for analyzing public spaces, helping to recommend structural modifications to reduce the transmission of pathogens. Regarding the management of air pollution with fine particles, CFD allows a detailed analysis of the dispersion of these particles, identifying the sources, evaluating their dispersion and concentration. The integration of this technique into the development of capture or separation systems offers an innovative approach to mitigate the risks associated with these particles.

Integrating CFD into the research process enables cost-effective and rapid virtual testing, reducing experimentation costs and time. By promoting a continuous improvement approach, CFD becomes a catalyst for innovative and adaptive solutions, responding to complex public health challenges. In this context, the use of CFD simulation represents a substantial advance for public health research, providing multidisciplinary perspectives to address current and future health and environmental challenges.

Objectives of the Mini-Symposium

The proposed mini-symposium will be an opportunity to present state-of-the-art work on the theme of CFD applied to the control of public health. It will promote exchanges and be a source of written publications or oral communications in the fields of computational fluid mechanics and health. Several teams will be presenting their work on this major issue.

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 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.
