ENEM14014 - Capstone Thermofluid Engineering
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEM14014 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

This unit provides you with opportunities to develop and demonstrate your professional capabilities in the field of thermofluid engineering. You will analyse, explain and evaluate the performance of air-conditioning and refrigeration plant; and mass, heat and energy transfer processes in industrial plant and processes. You will describe types and characteristics of fluid machinery, apply the theory of energy transfer to its operation, and analyse complex fluid flows using computational methods. You will then apply discipline theories and methods to design, implementation, operation and maintenance of industrial mechanical systems. You are required to show you can work both individually and collaboratively, to solve problems, and document and communicate their work clearly in a professional manner. Distance Education students will be required to attend a compulsory residential school to promote development of unit learning outcomes.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Presentation and Written Assessment 25%
2. Presentation and Written Assessment 20%
3. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
4. In-class Test(s) 35%

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
Feedback on some assessment items (Project#2, Class Test#2 and Lab reports) was late because their submission date was close to one another in Week 12 which creates a spike in load for the lecturer to mark and provide timely feedback. Student Course Evaluation Feedback The number of assessment items and their submission time will be reviewed along with a review of the grading assessment criteria.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Analyse, explain and evaluate performance characteristics and determine load on air conditioning and refrigeration plants
  2. Analyse, explain and evaluate mass, energy and heat transfer processes in industrial plant and components, and industrial processes
  3. Describe types and characteristics fluid machinery and apply and explain the theory of energy transfer to its operation in engineering applications
  4. Explain and analyse complex flows and computational fluid dynamics methods in such flows.
  5. Apply discipline theories and methods to the problems of designing, implementing, operating and maintaining mechanical systems in industrial contexts
  6. Communicate professionally and provide evidence of personal reflection on, and critical assessment of, team contributions and professional development, and development of technical competence in thermofluid engineering
  7. Reflect upon, formulate and solve problems and record and communicate professionally the approach used to resolve problems and the reasons for adopting such approaches to problems

Assessment Criteria

This is a Team Project and initially team submission will be assessed and a grade will be given for each team. Then individual grade will be determined based on their contribution and performance. Team members will need to indicate their individual contribution. It may be possible that individual grade could be higher than the team mark, but capped at the maximum mark for the assessment. Details project marking criteria will be provided on Moodle.

Example: Individual contributions of 3 students in Team A are given below. This Team A received 36 marks (out of 40) for their project.

S1 - 30%; S2 - 33%; S3 - 37% (Total 100% contribution)

Based on the contribution, Individual marks are given as follow.

S1 = 36 x (30/33.3) = 32.4 (out of 40)

S2 = 36 x (33/33.3) = 35.6 (out of 40)

S3 = 36 x (37/33.3) = 40.0 (out of 40)

Conditions Minimum mark or grade - You must participate and contribute to successful completion of the project and should meet the set criteria of satisfying the Learning Objectives

3 Practical and Written Assessment

Assessment Title Laboratory Test and Report
Task Description

Each student will be required to complete the laboratory exercises as per the instruction sheets which will be available in the unit website. Laboratory sessions are compulsory, and each session will be up to 2 hours in duration. The timetable of laboratories will be supplied separately via unit website (Moodle).

Statement on Safety

According to the Workplace Health and Safety Act, 1995, it is a legal requirement that all persons at a workplace must not act in a manner that endangers the health or safety of any person at that workplace. As a student, your University is your workplace. When attending laboratories, workshops and field activities, fully enclosed footwear covering the whole foot must be worn at all times. Other personal protective equipment must be worn when required, or as directed by the lecturer or technical officer-in-charge. All requirements of the Faculty Workplace Clothing Policy must also be observed. In the laboratory clothing must fully cover the torso, and have at least a short sleeve (i.e. no singlets). Failure to comply with any of the above health and safety requirements may result in your exclusion from laboratory, workshop or activities - most of which are compulsory.

At laboratory session

Arrive early; communicate with other members of the groups, discuss individual tasks/contribution in readiness for the laboratory experiment.

Ensure to bring

Laboratory instruction sheets if any; Graph paper (A4 linear, 10 div/cm); Notebook (A4 hard bound); Ruler (30 cm clear plastic); Pen and pencil; Scientific calculator; Correct footwear.

Students are expected to complete the entire laboratory exercise including the drawing of graphs and calculating the final answer. All raw data must be entered in the notebook immediately.

Laboratory submission cover sheet

Softcopy (electronic) submissions must be compiled as one single pdf file and submitted through the unit website (Moodle). The first page of the assignment must show the following information: Names, Student Numbers, Group No, Year, Term, Unit Code, Assessment item details.
