ICYA-1122 Materiales en Ingeniería Civil

Introduction to materials science, with emphasis on inspection and testing of the materials most commonly employed in civil engineering. In the class sessions, the course studies in detail the mechanical properties and the production processes (or treatment) of structural steel, hydraulic concrete, masonry, wood, and plastics. The course is accompanied by laboratory tests used in civil engineering and its relationship to the analysis of the material mechanical behavior. Topics being discussed include: cementitious materials, portland cement, concrete water content, aggregates in concrete, properties of fresh and hardened concrete, concrete mix design, ferrous materials, wood, and plastics.
