ENAC12002 - Steel and Concrete Design
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENAC12002 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 is a basic introduction to structural design that develops students understanding of the design process and equips students to prepare simple designs under supervision of a professional engineer. It builds on structural analysis skills developed in Applied Structural Analysis. The unit presents the structural properties of steel and concrete. Students design simple reinforced concrete and steel members and structural connections to meet strength and serviceability requirements and provide clear documentation of their analysis and design. Students are required to communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams in a professional manner. Distance education (FLEX) students will be required to have access to a computer, and make frequent use of the Internet.

2. Written Assessment 35%
3. Written Assessment 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.
