3) Title: 4th Symposium on Computational Simulation and Experimental Analysis of Hygrothermal Phenomena in Building Envelopes
Organizer: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Zuzana Hlaváčová, Department of Physics, Faculty of Engineering, Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, Trieda Andreja Hlinku 2, 94976 Nitra, Slovakia

E-mail: Zuzana.Hlavacova@uniag.sk

Short description:

The overall degradation of a 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 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 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 degradation of building envelopes 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 materials on the other. The main topics include but are not limited to:

  • Characterization of environmental impact on buildings
  • Computational modeling of hygrothermal processes in building envelopes
  • Determination of input parameters for computational analyses
  • Experimental investigation of hygrothermal processes
  • Computer-aided service life estimates

Complexity of modern digital circuits makes “manual” designing at a low level of abstraction practically unfeasible. A human designer must be supported by appropriate software tools, which can “translate” the desired function into a structure consisting of logic gates, and/or equivalent primitive elements available in the target technology. Logic synthesis is the crucial stage, providing the bridge between design description and technology mapping. As the result of the logic synthesis process a solution is generated, which is a structure of appropriately interconnected logic gates, flip-flops, LUTs, etc. Typically, the synthesis is performed for an objective function, such as minimizing the number of logic blocks (area), delay of interconnection, minimizing the power consumed, or making the implementation more testable. Logic synthesis utilizes very specific mathematical apparatus, e. g. set theory, and various kinds of graphs.

 The aim of the symposium is to provide a platform for discussion on recent research results, technology trends, developments, and achievements in the fields of logic synthesis, and control systems, together with security aspects.

Recent years have seen an increasing interest concerning the relation between the theory underlying  the mathematical analysis of stochastic phenomena and its interplay with numerical methods related to the emerging field of machine learning. In particular, problems arising in Finance/Insurance, Industry, Energy production/consumption,  Biology as well as population dynamics and in depth study of complex systems characterized by huge number of interacting agents, as in the case of Mean Field Games scenarios, are usually treated exploiting the theory of Stochastic  (possibly w.r.t. partial derivatives) Differential Equations when different source of  randomness have to be considered in order to correctly model uncertainty coming from both exogenous and endogenous sources of noise. Such probabilistic approach has been extended over years to include diffusive as well as impulsive types of stochastic inputs, leading to impressive results concerning a huge set of real-world problems spanning from energy forecasting, to stock options dynamics, from collective human phenomena, to fault detection and predictive maintenance, etc. Such improvements heavily rely on numerical schemes implementing the mathematical theory behind them, e.g., for calibration aims or in order to produce optimized estimates based on relevant systems’ parameters. Last type of tasks have been recently became a focusing point within the so called Machine Learning approach to numerics. In particular, the challenge for the application of smart Neural Networks based techniques is rapidly becoming as one of the most stimulating one within the mathematical arena, blending sophisticated stochastic techniques, as in the case of  SPDEs treatment in infinite dimension, with pioneering, yet strictly formally correct,  approach to NNs-based calibration procedures.
Summing up, this special symposium aims at collecting contributes of the highest  mathematical level addressing the aforementioned challenges, also proposing new methods and insights as to close the gap between the well established SPDEs theory  and modern ML-based solutions.

Allometry is the study of the relationship of body size to shape , anatomy, physiology, behaviour and ecology first outlined by Otto Snell in 1892, by D’Arcy Thompson in 1917 and by Julian Huxley in 1932. Huge numbers of morphological, anatomical, physiological, medical and biophysical traits of living organisms depend on their mass, size, body mass index, and life expectancy. The relationship between the local parameters and the integral characteristics of the organisms is assumed to be expressed by allometric dependencies of the type: Y = aXb, where a and b are constants, Y reflect the local traits and X reflect the integral characteristics of the organism- mass, volume, surface, BMI, lifespan and others. The power coefficient can have positive and negative values and varied normally in the window from zero to 2.0. The correlation coefficients in these relationships are generally high and reflect statistically significant relationships between variables. Allometric dependencies allow new empirical patterns and statistical links to be found between first-look unrelated characteristics of living organisms. Since the use of allometry is done for the first time for the purposes of biology, these dependencies are well developed in this area, but are still poorly addressed in the field of medicine, despite the vast array of data in this field of science and practice. The same applies to areas such as biophysics, biochemistry, bio-technical sciences as well as other scientific areas related to living organisms and systems (ecology, Solar-Earth connections, epidemic and climatic dependencies and their impact on organisms and ecosystems). The necessary condition for a possible allometric connection is to obtain a relatively high correlation coefficient between the variables in the processing of the data sets. The additional condition for allometric scaling is the proportional change of these organismal characteristics, according to body mass, size, BMI, lifespan and others. Allometric scaling is a method for examining the structural and functional consequences of changes in size, mass, lifespan and connection to various unknown regulatory mechanisms. All this expresses the all-time approach as a promising innovative method in all areas of science.
