National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
EAC010B Analyse and design flexural members (complex)
1. Design beams and one-way slabs (single span and continuous) to satisfy strength and serviceability requirements.
1.1 Selection is made of the minimum effective depth of a beam or
2. Design two-way slabs supported by rigid beams and walls to satisfy strength and serviceability requirements
2.1 Calculations are carried out to design a two-way rectangular
3. Proportion footings and design axially loaded footings
3.1 Plan dimensions of combined or strap footing is determined for
3.3 Calculations are carried out to design a rectangular combined
4. Design short and slender columns
4.1 Calculations are carried out to design short columns with
Details of Learning Activities
Theory and industry-based worked examples on the:
• Analysis and design of one way slab for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings
• Analysis and design of two way slab for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings
• Analysis and design of reinforced concrete beams for shear and deflection for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings
• Analysis and design of short and slender column for a Reinforced Concrete Office Building using industry drawings slabs
• Termination and layout of reinforcement to satisfy Code requirements
• Using the Internet research AS 3600 and identify the clauses required for the analysis and design of reinforced concrete beams and slab
Assignment tasks involve applications of standards, codes and requirements applicable to analysis and design of flexural concrete members according to Australian standards as close as practicable to real work situations and include real work decisions by the learner
Students will be involved in industry visits and or engineering industry exhibitions.
Students in the final stage of Advanced Diploma are encouraged to undertake an industrial practice work placement activity, which requires student to undertake tasks related to structural design domain within industry.
Task may involve activities linked to auto cad, software packages, project management, evaluation and analysis, etc.
Engineering employment requires the capacity to work effectively in teams, to communicate effectively in both oral and writing and to learn effectively. In order to prepare students for employment as graduates they will be provided a quality assured teaching and learning environment which is conductive to the development of adult learning. Adult learning is characterised by the students accepting responsibility for their own learning and actively participating in the learning process as individuals and as contributors to the teams. Adult learning is the hallmark of a professional. The specific responsibilities as adult learners in respect of this subject are:
. to be aware of and to observe the regulations related to plagiarism
. to submit (on time) all work for assessment as required
. to complete all pre-reading and preparatory work prior to the class for which it will be used
. to effectively use the academic staff resources provided (consultation time, tutors, e- mail etc)
. to participate as an effective and honest member of a learning team
. to contribute effectively to a group of peers in a climate of mutual respect and to question each other and the academic staff when uncertain.

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
The assessment is conducted in both theoretical and practical aspects of the course according to the performance criteria set in the National Training Package.
Assessment may incorporate a variety of methods including written/oral activities and demonstration of practical skills to the relevant industry standards.
Participants are advised that they are likely to be asked to personally demonstrate their assessment activities to their teacher/assessor.
Feedback will be provided throughout the course. To successfully complete this course you will be required to demonstrate competency in each assessment task detailed under Assessment Tasks section of Course Guide Part B.
This unit will be assessed in the classroom environment using holistic assessment, based on typical workplace activities.
Written/ oral assessment will be done covering elements 1, 2,3 and 4
Project report preparation for assessment will be done covering elements 1, 2,3 and 4
Work performance project and activities on determining the project requirements, establishing a analysis, design and documenting project report.
Project activities will be as close as practicable to real work situations and will require “real work” type decision-making by the student.
Assessment requirements also include:
- attendance and satisfactory completion of prescribed practical exercises ,
- evidence of participation in and satisfactory completion of work simulation projects.
-satisfactory completion of class assignment work
-timely submission and standard presentation for all assessment material / documentation
