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.
