ENEM14016 - Fluid Machinery

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This project based unit will introduce you to fluid and electrical drives and the design of integrated drive systems for use in industry. It covers: comparison of characteristics, construction, selection, design and operation of fluid and electric drives and drive systems; use of mathematical models to analyse performance; machine protection and control schemes; and evaluation of drive system performance. You will apply formulas and explain and record calculations. You will adopt professional approaches to work in teams and learn collaboratively to manage and complete projects. You will manage your own learning; investigate, design and check designed works performed; and communicate professionally using discipline language to present designs and problem solutions. Distance education students are required to have access to a computer, to make frequent use of the Internet, and are required to participate in Residential School activities.

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

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 12-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 25%
2. Written Assessment 25%
3. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
4. Online Quiz(zes) 30%

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%).

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.

Source: Moodle site
Feedback
The unit content was interesting and relevant to the projects, quiz and laboratory sessions. The lab session was also one of the most interesting and enjoyable labs of the unit
Recommendation
Good practice will be continued.
Action Taken
Continued.

Feedback
The unit structure is good. The project task is giving depth of technical exposure to designing of a hydraulic system. Students can understand basic aspects of design of hydraulic machineries.
Recommendation
Will be continued and refined.
Action Taken
Nil.

Feedback
Use of SimScape softwere is the best aspect of this unit. Additional support can help more in student learning.
Recommendation
In 2018, SimScape Fluid software was introduced for the first time. Some support was provided. However, additional support will be provided for the next offering.
Action Taken
Nil.

Feedback
Mixed mode students questioned the expense of attending Residential School/s.
Recommendation
Investigate the possibility of minimising the number of Residential Schools. Investigate combining the Residential School of this unit with another unit.
Action Taken
Nil.
Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
