Course Description

This unit covers the competency to carry out analysis and design of flexural reinforced concrete members, including beams and one-way slabs.

National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

 National Element Code & Title: EAC020B Analyse and design flexural concrete members (simple) Element: 1. Carry out analysis and design of singly reinforced concrete beams. Performance Criteria: 1.1 Design loads are calculated for each live load configuration. 1.2 Design shear forces are calculated for each live load configuration. 1.3 Design moments are calculated for the critical live load configuration. 1.4 Design moment capacity is calculated to satisfy the moment envelope. 1.5 Calculations are completed to design a flexural member for strength conditions and to satisfy durability. Element: 2. Carry out analysis and design of doubly reinforced concrete beams. Performance Criteria: 2.1 Calculations are carried out to analyse and design doubly reinforced beams. Element: 3. Carry out analysis and design of reinforced concrete T-beams and L-beams. Performance Criteria: 3.1 Effective flange width is determined for T-beam or L-beam sections. 3.2 Calculations are carried out to analyse and design T-beam or L-beam sections. Element: 4. Carry out analysis and design of continuous beams and continuous one-way slabs. Performance Criteria: 4.1 Design bending moments are determined for a twospan or three-span continuous beam using appropriate coefficients. 4.2 Design shear forces are determined 4.3 Reinforcement is determined to satisfy negative and positive design moments. Element: 5. Calculate termination of reinforcement and layout reinforcement to satisfy Code requirements. Performance Criteria: 5.1 Reinforcement is chosen to satisfy development length requirements 5.2 Points of curtailment are calculated 5.3 Layout of reinforcement is detailed Element: 6. Evaluate the need to provide shear and torsion reinforcement Performance Criteria: 6.1 The need for shear and torsion reinforcement is evaluated. 6.2 Size and spacing of reinforcement is determined to satisfy AS 3600

Overview of Assessment

Assessment are conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set out in the National Training Package. Students are required to undertake summative assessments that bring together knowledge and skills.  To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment tasks detailed under the Assessment Task Section.

Your assessment for this course will be marked using the following table:

NYC (<50%)  Not Yet Competent

CAG (50-59%)  Competent - Pass

CC (60-69%)  Competent - Credit

CDI (70-79%)  Competent - Distinction

CHD (80-100%)  Competent - High Distinction

This unit will be assessed in the classroom environment using holistic assessment, based on typical workplace activities.

•  Project - 50%, Elements 1, 2,3,4,5 and 6
• Final exam - 50% Elements 1,2,3,3,5 and 6

Disability Liaison Unit:

Students with disability or long-term medical condition should contact Disability Liaison Unit to seek advice and support to complete their studies.

Late submission:

Students requiring extensions for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) must complete and lodge an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.
The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. The student will be notified within no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgment as to whether the extension has been granted.

Students seeking an extension of more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) must lodge an Application for Special Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days after the official due date.

Assignments submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.
