ENEG11006 - Engineering Statics
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEG11006 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

Understanding forces applied to structural elements and static equilibrium concepts is essential for analysis of statically determinate engineering structures including beams, trusses and frames. You will analyse such structures under external forces to create Free-body diagrams, calculate support reactions and determine internal forces acting on the structures. You will be drawing diagrams of Shear Force and Bending Moments after calculating the internal forces.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

2. Written Assessment 20%
3. Written Assessment 20%
4. Examination 40%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Textbook is complex. Course Evaluation The textbook is one of the best available on the market. How to use the textbook will be better communicated with students in the first week.
Assignment problems were more complex than examples in the lectures. Course Evaluation It is generally expected that assignment items are slightly complex than the lectures. However, attempt will be made to solve problems of mixed complexities during the lecture.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Analyse two dimensional force systems to determine resultant forces
  2. Calculate sectional properties such as centre of gravity, centroid and second moment of Inertia of simple structural forms
  3. Apply static equilibrium concepts to bodies with external forces and moments, create Free-body diagrams and determine support reactions
  4. Analyse statically determinate structures, including beams, frames and trusses, to calculate internal forces and create Shear-force and Bending-moment diagrams.
  5. Demonstrate a professional level of communication skills in written work

Learning outcomes are linked to Engineers Australia Stage 1 Competencies and also discipline capabilities. You can find the mapping for this on the Engineering Undergraduate Course website.

Assessment Title Progressive Tests
Task Description

This assessment task consists of four "Progressive Tests", each weighs 5% of your final mark. Each Test consists of 5-10 Numerical questions.

Important Notes:

  • Each Test is set for 60 minutes. You have 60 minutes from when you start your attempt to submit your answers.
  • If you start but leave a test and come back to it later, your 60 min time may have lapsed and you will be scored zero for that attempt.
  • You can attempt the Test up to THREE times within the given time frame as specified in the Schedule. The test will be automatically closed after the end of the given time frame.
  • Final mark will be the highest of all the attempts.
  • Even though the tests are open for a few days, it is expected that your first attempt would be on the first day.
  • The Tests cannot generally be deferred. However, under exceptional circumstances if you have valid reasons to defer the test(s), please contact the Unit Coordinator with documents of proof before the due date. The proof should cover for all the dates that the test/s is/are open.
