General Information

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 Grading

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 Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Statement on Safety
According to the Workplace Health and Safety Act, 1995, it is a legal requirement that all persons at a workplace must not act in a manner that endangers the health or safety of any person at that workplace. As a student, your University is your workplace. When attending laboratories, workshops and field activities, fully enclosed footwear covering the whole foot must be worn at all times. Other personal protective equipment must be worn when and if required, or as directed by the lecturer or technical officer-in-charge. All requirements of the Faculty Workplace Clothing Policy must also be observed. In the laboratory clothing must fully cover the torso, and have at least a short sleeve (i.e. no singlets). Failure to comply with any of the above health and safety requirements may result in your exclusion from laboratory, workshop or activities - most of which are compulsory.
At laboratory session:
Arrive early; communicate with other members of the groups and be ready for the laboratory experiment.
Ensure to bring:
Laboratory instruction sheets if any;
Graph paper (A4 linear, 10 div/cm);
Notebook (A4 hard bound);

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 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.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.

What can you do to act with integrity?
