Speech Title: Focus on Digital Construction of Smart Cities from COVID-19 Epidemic Prevention and Control

Abstract: In recent years, COVID-19 epidemic prevention and control, the construction of smart city has played a positive role. Many places have built an all-around and three-dimensional epidemic prevention and control system through grid management precision control, big data analysis precision judgment, mobile terminal connectivity, and city brain comprehensive command, which has significantly improved the agility and accuracy of responding to the epidemic. Many applications of new-generation information technologies, such as big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, blockchain and 5G, have provided efficient services for fighting the epidemic.


Ran Tao, Professor, College of Water Resources and Civil Engineering, China Agricultural University, China

Speech Title: Mode Decomposition Based Researches in Hydraulic Machinery Flow Cases

Abstract: Hydraulic machinery is widely used in industrial and agricultural fields for the delivery of water and other liquid mediums. It is usually filled with fully developed turbulence, and its characteristics are difficult to predict. The analysis of internal flow in hydraulic machinery is conducive to solving the problem of unstable operation caused by turbulence. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) based mode decomposition of flow field has become popular in recent years. It can greatly reduce the complexity of the flow field, so that each mode represents the specific energy information or frequency information of the flow field. After the low energy mode is removed, the data volume of the high energy mode is greatly reduced. This method is also conducive to effectively summarizing the universal laws of similar flows. After the flow mode is split, machine learning can be used to replace CFD. This application can greatly reduce the prediction time and provide a new solution for future flow analysis. It is also helpful for us to have a better understanding of water flow and other liquid flow in engineering cases.

Speech Title: Towards Smart and Energy Efficient Buildings and Communities

Abstract: Buildings and building blocks are considered key components in most of the national and international legislation and initiatives aiming to reduce energy consumption and the corresponding emissions and achieve energy and environmental goals. However, most of the efforts and investigations reported in recent years have concentrated on the energy-efficient design and performance improvement of single buildings or limited clusters of buildings. Considering the transition towards interconnected cities and communities and the widespread evolution of smart and flexible thermal and electrical grids and microgrids, there is an urgent need to scale up the effort from energy efficient single buildings and clusters to interconnected, energy-efficient, and flexible cities and neighborhoods. In this talk, recent advancements in the field of building energy performance optimization and improvement using dynamic energy modeling will be presented. In addition, a holistic approach to upscaling the effort and improving the energy design of smart communities and districts will be highlighted. In this regard, a case study of an actual district in Denmark will be demonstrated.
