ICYA-3202 Diseño Estructural

The behavior of reinforced concrete as structural material is covered in order to understand the fundamentals of its design. An introduction to the concrete structural systems is included, policies, regulations and codes that rule its design (Colombian earthquake-resistant construction regulation – NSR-10), the structural security concepts, design loads, behavior and design premises of reinforced concrete. The physical and mechanical properties of concrete and reinforcement steel are covered in detail. The fundamentals of structure construction with reinforced concrete are reviewed. The behavior of reinforced concrete elements under axial load (with no momentum) is studied. Design of elements under flexion, shear stress and torsion is covered. The adherence, anchorage, and reinforcement steel junctions are discussed. Function and flexion of reinforced concrete elements is reviewed. The behavior and design of columns under flexo-compression including the slenderness problem is studied. Slabs in one and two directions, principles of concrete structure analysis, foundation, contention walls and design of elements like stairways and ramps are covered. The last topic covered is the design of earthquake-resistant reinforced concrete structures.

ICYA-3203 Gerencia de Proyectos de Construcción

The construction sector in Colombia is one of the main lines of economic development. The use of workforce and materials is carried out intensively, taking first the place in terms of processing resources. This course is responsible for presenting a panorama of the construction from the civil engineer point of view, framed in the management of projects, which have their own characteristics and life cycle clearly identified. Through the different concepts presented in the course the student is introduced to the knowledge areas applicable to the development of construction projects, which are needed to achieve with efficiency and effectiveness the frame components (scope, time, cost and quality). After completing this course the student will be familiar with tools that will allow him to work with interdisciplinary teams and have the ability to coordinate different aspects relevant to the management of construction projects.

ICYA-3305 Estructuras Geotécnicas

Civil engineers frequently face problems related with the design, build, maintenance, and eventual repair of structures for which the terrain is a component. The design of those structures is controlled by the strain and stresses in the soil and in the materials that compose the structures. The course presents a description of a wide variety of geotechnical structures analyzing its performance. The geotechnical structures studied are: pavements, shallow and deep foundations, retaining walls and an introduction to slope stability are presented.

ICYA-3605 Sistemas de Información Geográfica y Planificación Ambiental

Geographic information management is essential in any project related to natural resources planning. Good management and planning of these phenomena or resources requires locating and monitoring them, allowing the arrangement or interpretation of their changes. This course intends to provide the theoretical and practical elements necessary to formulate appropriate solutions to the different problems that appear in environmental management. Using Geographic Information Systems, students will develop the ability to manage and analyze geographic information, simulate and model impacts that solve and help decision-making by the generation of spatial knowledge for environmental planning. It will allow the understanding of basic cartography concepts, remote perception and Global Positioning System –GPS-, allowing the development of spatial analysis abilities, through multicriteria and multiobjective assessment.
