ICYA-1111B Water and the Environment

How did the ancient civilizations obtain water for their personal needs, irrigation and navigation? Which techniques did they use to build these projects to fruitfully use hydrological resources? What were the beginnings of hydroelectricity? To answer these and other questions, this course provides the students with a framework of reference about the physical natural processes associated to water. Additionally, identifies and analyzes the different processes and technological systems to successfully use and control water and its impact on the environment. Finally, it makes reference to the legal and institutional framework in Colombia and brings forward questions about the future of hydrological resources, It is a multidisciplinary study that allows students from different majors and postgraduate courses to have access to current issues related to quantity and quality of water in the world and specifically in Colombia.

ICYA-4410 Comportamiento y Diseño en Estructuras de Acero

The objective of the course is to train students in the management of the basic concepts that will allow them to understand the behavior of the most frequently used in civil works steel structures and to have the basics to perform a design of different types of elements put under different requirements including gravitational, static, dynamic loads and horizontal loads caused by wind and/or earth quakes. Participants study designs responding to tension, compression, and flexion and combined loads such as flexion-compression or shear-tension. Bolt and welded connections are reviewed. By the end of the course, the student will be able to develop a conceptual design of components and its connections applied to buildings, roofs or bridges. Special emphasis is given to seismic behavior of buildings built using steel structures and the special seismic requirements under the applicable regulation. Students will conduct a series of demonstrative experimental tests on different conditions and loads that happen in practice and that help illustrate the theoretical developments of the course. Students carry out a real structure design project.

ICYA-4510 Cimentaciones Avanzadas

Foundation analysis frequently faces complex problems in that land stresses and deformations are the result of the interaction between the soil and the structure in media whose properties can be random. This course will teach the student how to analyze foundation or containment structures, bearing in mind the variables of the terrain and the stochastic variables. We will study diverse problems of interaction between the land and a foundation: foundation slabs with individual or group piles under generalized loads, pile slab systems, excavations with panels or sheet piles. We will also study foundations on complex soils such as compressible soils or expansive or collapsible soils. The course will also look at numeric or physical modeling techniques using geotechnical centrifuges.

ICYA-4602 Diseño Avanzado de Pavimentos

Modern tendencies in the designing of flexible and rigid pavements point at designs based on deformations and stresses in the different layers of the pavement. These design methodologies are known as mechanicist methodologies, to this end, we present first the main properties of the materials making up the pavement: materials with asphaltic or hydraulic binder, or unbinded materials. We also study the methodologies of stress analysis, and deformations in the layers of pavement. We also describe the procedures of design for different structures of pavement: flexible, with thick asphaltic layers, mixed, reversed and rigid. Finally, we present the fashion of involving within the designs the stochastic variables, and we present the methodologies of optimization that involve construction costs and pavement maintenance.

ICYA-4803 Planeación de Transporte

Why are some transportation plans implemented? But why do the majority of those plans just decorate bookshelves? What role do technicians play in the planning process? How can technicians have an influence on a technical and political process such as planning? How does a democratic society make collective decisions? This course will attempt to give a response to these questions by analyzing case studies, both Colombian and foreign. In addition, the course will look at recent developments in decision-making theory, and developments in the theories on design, analysis, and implementation of transportation plans. The basic objective is to understand the determining factors that lead to the implementation of a plan and lead to the plan meeting its objectives. The course has other objectives such as improving the student’s analytical capacity, his oral and written expression, and his tolerance for the ideas of others.

ICYA-4807 Transporte Publico y Masivo

This course focuses on the planning, management and operation of public and massive transportation systems. The course analyses the pros and cons of the main technologies of massive transportation with buses, and fast transportation with trains. The course analyzes the fashion to plan the service: how to calculate the size of the fleet, the design of schedules, appointing of drivers to vehicles, plans of operations and real-time operations, among other. The course is based on an real-life application, that will likely consist on studying a solution for public transportation in Bogota´s 7th avenue. Technical visits to the TransMilenio and to Medellin´s Subway (subject to availability of financial resources) will be arranged.

General aspects connected to the role assigned to transportation within different development plans, the transportation plans and guidelines developed in the Country, the institutional framework, the role of the private sector, and topics such as operation conditions and perspectives towards the future in each of the models will be studied. The general methodology for project evaluation with emphasis in the application of NPV and IRR, including the guidelines of social evaluation of transportation projects will be reviewed. Different means of transportation (roads, fluvial, trains, ports, airports, and intermodal transportation) will be analyzed, pointing out infrastructure weaknesses and strengths, as well as different analysis and construction and maintenance costs evaluation, vehicular operation costs and their relationship with freight and fees for each mode. Existing operational norms and regulations.
