ENEC13016 - Concrete Technology and Design
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEC13016 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 introduces you to the design of concrete structures, including structural components such as beams, slabs, columns, footings and retaining walls. You will identify loads and load paths for gravity and lateral loading. Construction materials are also reviewed in the context of sustainability and environmental issues. You will also plan, prepare and carry out tests on structural concrete components, interpret the results and prepare test reports. Building design and serviceability requirements are integrated in the design process. Individual and team work focuses on development of professionalism, ethical practice, problem solving and communication. Students enrolled in distance mode are required to attend a compulsory Residential School.

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).

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 20%
2. In-class Test(s) 40%
3. Practical and Written Assessment 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.

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Select and specify materials for concrete structures in the context of sustainability and environmental issues and required structural performance
  2. Determine identify load paths in structural systems for gravity and lateral loading
  3. Explain the limit state design process and check for ultimate limit state and serviceability limit state requirements in reinforced concrete design
  4. Design reinforced concrete beams, slabs, columns and retaining walls according to Australian Standard
  5. Plan, test and interpret results of tests on structural materials and prepare test reports
  6. Demonstrate a professional level of communication and teamwork

The learning outcomes are linked to Engineers Australia Stage 1 Competencies and also discipline capabilities.
