ENEM12006 - Fluid Mechanics
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEM12006 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 the fundamental properties of fluids, analysis of pipe flow and analysis of buoyancy and stability of floating objects. It presents methods of analysing fluid systems using the concept of a control volume combined with the conservation of mass and momentum equations. Students analyse incompressible flows in pipe systems and use similitude and modelling principles and techniques to solve problems in fluid mechanics. Students will prepare technical and laboratory reports using appropriate "mechanical engineering language", and document the process of modelling and analysis. They are required to act professionally in presenting information, communicating, working and learning, both individually and in teams. Distance education (FLEX) students must have access to a computer and make frequent use of the Internet. FLEX students will be required to attend a 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. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
2. Written Assessment 20%
3. Written Assessment 20%
4. Written Assessment Pass/Fail
5. 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
Make formal exam an open book exam Student feedback Currently, formal exam is closed book and an equation sheet, relevant information and figures are supplied with the exam paper. Prevailing view is - this method is effective and not disruptive. Would need to assess further the merit and benefit of open book exam from pedagogical view point before making a final decision since it has the potential of becoming distracting.
Positive feedback on structure, content and engagement student feedback and staff evaluation Continue with the broad format and maintain review for further improvement
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. prepare technical and laboratory reports based on thorough evaluation of data and associated uncertainties
  2. use appropriate mechanical engineering language in context
  3. document the process of modelling and analysis and present the information in a professional manner
  4. communicate, work and learn, individually and in peer learning teams in a professional manner
  5. explain the fundamental properties of fluids and apply this knowledge to analyse fluid flow in pipes
  6. analyse the buoyancy and stability of floating bodies
  7. analyse fluid systems using the concept of a control volume combined with the conservation of mass and momentum equations
  8. analyse incompressible flows in pipe systems
  9. apply similitude and modelling principles and techniques to problems in fluid mechanics

4 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Workbook
Task Description
The Workbook provides a record or detailed diary of each individual student’s study and learning activities throughout the unit. It should include all individual work and activities.
Maintaining a Workbook is viewed as a sound study technique. It is intended to provide an evidence if students have adequately studied the whole unit and achieved unit learning outcomes. The Workbook can be handwritten or kept as a text file. Each entry should be dated and pages should be numbered with student name or initials. It should be prepared week by week, not at the end of the Term. It should contain your attempts at problems including failures and fixes, brainstorming, draft notes and developing ideas.
A typical Workbook should record:
  • study notes taken while studying textbooks and unit resources
  • study notes taken during lectures and/or workshops
  • personal study summaries of key concepts
  • notes, sketches/ drawings or mind-maps
  • planning and preparation for team/project tasks
  • planning and preparation for online unit discussions
  • workbook practice tasks you are asked to complete in the Unit Website
  • initial attempts at set tutorial tasks
  • initial attempts at assignment tasks
  • preparation for class tests or exams.
Assessment Due Date Review/Exam Week Friday (13-Oct-2017) 11:45 PM AEST
Return Date to Students In two weeks from the date of submission
Weighting Pass/Fail
Assessment Criteria
Workbook questions have been set for each topic and are available on the unit website. If students have difficulty with Workbook questions, they should seek assistance. All questions must be successfully completed in the workbook and responses must show sufficient working and explanation to allow step-by-step checking by tutors. At least 50% of the questions must be completed to achieve a Pass grade.
A question will be deemed to have been completed if the student has shown correct procedure and sound understanding of the work. All calculations should be justified with reference to the text or relevant Standards and Codes.
