This is my personal web page.

My name is Machairas Vasileios. I’m a Dr. engineer and a post-doc researcher at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) for optimization of building design and control.

The content of this site will include information on engineering projects and articles about:

  • Hi-tech engineering design techniques.
  • Identification of construction failures (structural and energy related) with the help of test and measurement tools.
  • Building energy simulation with research software.
  • Building construction optimization with stochastic optimization algorithms like the Genetic Algorithms, the Particle Swarm Optimization and direct search algorithms like the Parallel General Pattern Search.
