"Consistent Analytical, Numerical and Laboratory Modelling of Flows Around Obstacles"
Investigation of flow formation after starting of a body motion performed basing on the system of fundamental equations. Stratified (strong and weak) and homogeneous (potential and actual) fluids at rest were used as basic medium in experiments performed on stands of unique facility and supercomputer's calculations. The coupled system of differential equations for momentum, energy and concentrations of impurities was supplemented by closing equations for density and Gibbs potential together with physically based boundary conditions. Basic spatial and temporal scales of the system were defined and used for construction of similarity criteria, used for comparison of theoretical and experimental data. Evolution of flows around a horizontal strip, wedge or cylinder and sphere were studied. A fine structure of upstream disturbances, internal waves, running and attached vortices, downstream wakes was investigated in a wide range of the flow parameters including diffusion induced flows on motionless obstacles and transient vortex regimes at large values of Reynolds numbers. Observed and computed flow patterns are in good agreement with each other as a whole and in individual details. The transfer the results on flows in the environment and around moving bodies in water and air are discussed.

"Cross/Auto Correlation Response Functions for Designing BI Systems Under Weakly Stochastic Processes"
The plenary lecture focuses on main issues concerning the design of base isolation systems for structural dynamic control. The speech mainly outlines an original theoretical approach developed for improving the effectiveness and reliability of ordinary base isolation devices attached to civil engineering structures which undergo exceptional dynamic conditions.
The basic idea consists of designing the passive device according to some optimality criterion also accounting for the not-negligible soil-structure interaction effects; at this stage, the isolation device is, then, designed in such a way to be optimally tuned on the characteristics of the structure and of the soil at the site.
Thereafter, upon evaluation of the limits intrinsic in the effectiveness of such a passive device (even if already improved by embedding in its design the influence of the soil filtering on the structural response), an active dissipative device is coupled to the basic isolation system, which is , in turn, optimally designed for minimizing the structural response and the control costs.
The overall presented approach definitively produces an effective hybrid control base isolation, already optimized for the specific structure and soil in its passive component, and able to concentrate the active control effort only on the frequency ranges where it is required.
