ICYA-3202C Structural Design Complementary

The course covers the behavior of reinforced concrete as structural material in order to understand the fundamentals of its design. An introduction to concrete structural systems is included, policies, regulations and codes that rule its design (Colombian earthquake-resistant construction regulation - NSR-10), structural security concepts, design loads, and the behavior and design premises of reinforced concrete. The following topics are also covered on the course: the physical and mechanical properties of concrete and reinforcement steel: the fundamentals of structure construction with reinforced concrete; the behavior of reinforced concrete elements under axial load (with no momentum); the design of elements under flexion and shear stress; the adherence, anchorage, and reinforcement steel junctions; the function and flexion of reinforced concrete elements; the behavior and design of columns under flexo-compression, including the slenderness problem; slabs in one and two directions; the principles of concrete structure analysis; and foundation, stairways, and ramps design. The last topic covered is the design of earthquake-resistant reinforced concrete frames and walls.
