General Information

Overview

This unit introduces you to key concepts and principles required to analyse problems involving in engineering fluids. You 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. You 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. You will be able to prepare technical and laboratory reports that demonstrate critical evaluation of results and experimental uncertainties.

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).

Class and Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

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.

Assessment Tasks

1 Practical and Written Assessment

Assessment Title
Practical and Written Assessment

Task Description

Each student will be required to complete the laboratory exercises as per the instruction sheets which will be available in the unit website.

·  Analyse buoyancy and stability of floating bodies and hydrostatic effects of fluids using fundamental principles of fluids.

·  Analyse and determine pump characteristics and performance in piping systems.

·  Analyse hydrostatic effects of fluids using fundamental principles and properties to determine static pressures and forces.

Assessment Title
Online Quiz(zes)

Task Description

This assessment task consists of three "Online Quizzes". First, second and third carries 7%, 7%, and 6% marks, respectively. Each test consists of numerical, multiple choices, either true or false type questions.

Important Notes:

· Each Test is set for 60 minutes. You have 60 minutes from when you start your attempt to submit your answers.

· If you start but leave a test and come back to it later, your 60 min time may have lapsed, and you will be scored zero for that attempt.

· You can attempt each test up to three (3) times within the given time frame as specified in the schedule.

· The test will be automatically closed after the end of the given time frame.

· The final mark will be the highest of all the attempts.

· Even though the tests are open for a few days, it is expected that your first attempt would be on the first day.

· The Tests cannot generally be deferred. However, under exceptional circumstances, if you have valid reasons to defer the test(s), please contact the Unit Coordinator with documents of proof before the due date.

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.
