Evaluación del comportamiento sísmico de viviendas de estratos marginales con cubiertas verdes: estudio de caso del municipio de Soacha, Colombia

The research group Science and Engineering of Water and the Environment and Social Program of the Faculty of Engineering (PROSOFI) of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana proposed, for socially vulnerable population, green roofs based on covering the rooftop of houses with potentially productive vegetation. Taking into account that the inertial mass of the green roof could...

Desempeño sísmico de un pórtico con disipadores de energía pasivos de placas ranuradas de acero

This paper evaluates two types of hysteretic passive energy dissipation devices (steel slit plates). These devices are low-cost and easy to build and install. The seismic performance of three structural models were studied with shake table tests: a frame without energy dissipation device and two frames with two types of steel slit plates. The models were instrumented with...

Testing a multi-malaria-model ensemble against 30 years of data in the Kenyan highlands

Background Multi-model ensembles could overcome challenges resulting from uncertainties in models’ initial conditions, parameterization and structural imperfections. They could also quantify in a probabilistic way uncertainties in future climatic conditions and their impacts. Methods A four-malaria-model ensemble was implemented to assess the impact of long-term changes in...

Modelling entomological-climatic interactions of Plasmodium falciparum malaria transmission in two Colombian endemic-regions: contributions to a National Malaria Early Warning System

Background Malaria has recently re-emerged as a public health burden in Colombia. Although the problem seems to be climate-driven, there remain significant gaps of knowledge in the understanding of the complexity of malaria transmission, which have motivated attempts to develop a comprehensive model. Methods The mathematical tool was applied to represent Plasmodium falciparum...

Using Recombinant Proteins from Lutzomyia longipalpis Saliva to Estimate Human Vector Exposure in Visceral Leishmaniasis Endemic Areas

Background Leishmania is transmitted by female sand flies and deposited together with saliva, which contains a vast repertoire of pharmacologically active molecules that contribute to the establishment of the infection. The exposure to vector saliva induces an immune response against its components that can be used as a marker of exposure to the vector. Performing large-scale...
