ENAM12003 - Engineering Fluids
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENAM12003 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 students to key concepts and principles required to analyse problems involving engineering fluids. They will be able to explain how fluid properties relate to one another, apply principles of fluid statics, and analyse force and power associated with fluid flow. Students will be able to analyse head loss and pump performance in pipe systems, select fluid machines for given applications, and analyse drag acting on bodies in fluid flow. They will be able to prepare technical and laboratory reports that demonstrate critical evaluation of results and experimental uncertainties. Students are required to show they work productively, both individually and collaboratively, to solve problems, and document and communicate their work clearly in a professional manner. A compulsory residential school is provided to promote development of unit learning outcomes.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
2. Written Assessment 25%
3. Written Assessment 25%
4. Written Assessment 30%
5. Written Assessment Pass/Fail

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
The residential school were well set-up and helpful in furthering students knowledge. Moodle Formal Feedback Students indicated that the practical examples and activities during the residential school were helpful in furthering their knowledge.The practice will continue in the future offering.
The syllabus was broken down into manageable topics with a clear outline of expectations. Moodle Formal Feedback Students found the course enjoyable with a clear outline of expectations. The practice will continue in the future offering.
There was a slight delay in returning an assessment item due to malfunctioning of the newly adopted marking software 'remark'. Staff Reflection and Moodle Formal Feedback Steps will be undertaken to avoid any technical glitch in the marking software so that there is no delay in returning the assessment item.

5 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 course. 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 course 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 course discussions
  • workbook practice tasks you are asked to complete in the Course Website
  • initial attempts at set tutorial tasks
  • initial attempts at assignment tasks
  • preparation for class tests or exams.
Assessment Due Date Exam Week Monday (16-Oct-2017) 11:45 PM AEST
Return Date to Students It is expected that assignment will be returned in 2 weeks after the due date.
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.
