The overall degradation of a historical building material or structure can be expressed, in the simplest way, by a qualitative or numerical indicator of the global condition level which determines the loss of performance of the considered material, building part or the whole building under its climatic environment over time. Hygrothermal phenomena are responsible for a substantial part of degradation processes particularly in the cold regions, where water condensation and freezing belong to the main deterioration mechanisms. The load-bearing structures and surfaces are parts of a historical building where the assessment of the degradation level is most significant. The interface between structure and surface layer is another important point because if the adhesion of both layers is compromised, whole parts of surface layer can be detached. Computer simulation is a powerful tool for an assessment of the degradation level of a particular historical material or structure. However, the quality of input data presents a critical factor for the achievement of reliable results. Therefore, in any analysis of the environmental impact on the degradation of historical masonry computational simulations and experimental measurements are supposed to be done together.
The symposium brings together mathematicians active in numerical analysis and applied mathematics on one side, and experimental physicists and materials engineers working in the field of hygrothermal analysis and degradation of historical materials on the other. The main topics include but are not limited to:
• Characterization of environmental impact on historical masonry
• Computational modeling of hygrothermal processes in historical building envelopes
• Determination of input parameters for computational analyses
• Experimental investigation of hygrothermal processes
• Computer-aided service life estimates

Past earthquakes have shown that not only existing structures and infrastructures but also new constructions may exhibit insufficient resistance against seismic loads and extreme events.

The numerical and experimental assessment, as well as the mechanical modelling and design practice of existing and new structures when subjected to horizontal loads, is undoubtedly an open issue because of the complexity of the problem itself and because the research involves several different disciplines, fields of expertise, and approaches.

Open challenges to tackle a consistent seismic design are more profoundly faced by developing countries, where the inadequacy and poor access to advanced technologies, resources, and knowledge result in the construction of new structures still vulnerable to horizontal loads.

In contrast, open issues in industrialized countries continue to be the mitigation of the seismic vulnerability of existing structures and infrastructures, with special attention paid to traditional materials such as masonry and timber.

The Special Session aims at comprehensively collecting papers dealing with key issues related to the correct design of new structures and infrastructures and mitigating the vulnerability of existing buildings in seismic zones.

Experimental works, numerical models, emblematic case studies, and reviews of existing design and construction approaches are particularly welcome.

10) Title: Simulation of Physical Phenomenon in Engineering Systems
Organizers: Cher Ming Tan, Center for Reliability Science and Technologies, Chang Gung University, Taiwan

Email: cherming@ieee.org

To ensure optimal design of engineering systems, and assure their continuous operation over time under intended environmental conditions, accurate computation of the loading or stress on the system is necessary. With known stress conditions on the systems and the constituent components and materials, their possible degradation should also be predicted so that the system design and fabrication can be robust against the possible degradation to ensure successful operation over intended period of time.

In the past, one can only rely on experiences, and many experiments and tests are needed. This not only increase the cost of a system, it also delays the production of a system. In view of the fast pacing of today’s world, and our increasing reliance on technical systems which imply that they must be reliable and yet cost effective, a paradigm shift is necessary. With the advancement in computational capabilities from materials to systems, the necessity of the paradigm shift can become possible. This is in line with the emerging trend of digital twins where accurate physics-based modeling is required.

This symposium aims to discuss the above-mentioned paradigm shift through the exchange of knowledge, collaboration that can lead to the development of basics for the development of accurate digital twins that will be needed in the near future. I hereby invite all the researchers in computational disciplines to join this symposium to participate and accelerate the development of various type of digital twins.
