ENEC12012 - Stress Analysis
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEC12012 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

In this unit you will develop skills to analyse the stresses in a structural member subjected to various actions such as axial force, torsion, bending moments and shear force using the principles of mechanics of materials. You will learn how individual structural members resist and transfer the stresses as well as ways in which they can fail. You will document the process of modelling, testing and analysis and communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams in a professional manner. 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. Written Assessment 20%
3. Practical and Written Assessment 10%
4. Examination 50%

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
Well organised and well delivered unit. Moodle This will continue in next offer as well.
Practical classes helped to understand the concept in more clearly. Moodle and individual discussion with students This will continue in next offer as well.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Apply the principles and theories of mechanics of materials to the analysis of structural members
  2. Determine sectional properties, stresses and deflections of structural members
  3. Analyse structural members subjected to combined axial force, torsion, bending moment and shear force
  4. Determine principal stresses and discuss failure criteria for a range of engineering materials
  5. Demonstrate a professional level of communication and team work

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