Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites

EDX060 – Prepare basic mechanical and civil engineering drawings to AS 1100

Course Description

This unit covers the competency to interpret and use relevant concrete standards and codes to produce drawings for the detailing of reinforced concrete elements of buildings in accordance with accepted practices as outlined in AS 1100.501 and AS 3600.

Details of Learning Activities

Teacher Directed:
Teacher led face to face and one-on-one instruction using overheads and notes covering the concepts of preparing structural reinforced concrete drawings to AS 1100 and AS 3600. This will cover each element in designated areas of underpinning knowledge and include:
• Interpreting data from AS 1100 & 3600
• Layout of reinforced concrete drawings
• Using plans, elevations & sections to detail reinforcement
• Labelling and dimensioning of reinforcement
• Reinforcement types, shapes etc.
• Bar marks, scheduling & reinforcement quantities
• Laps, splices, embedment lengths.
• Concrete joints
• Interpreting the roles of other disciplines within the overall project.

Simulated Workplace Activities
In a computer lab using Computer Aided Drafting software, using appropriate standard symbols and terminology to AS 1100 & 3600 the student will prepare structural reinforced concrete drawings of a concrete framed structure based on industry standards and include:
• Preparing a fully dimensioned concrete layout plan.
• Preparing reinforced concrete plan of a floor slab with appropriate cross sections
• Prepare a detailed reinforced concrete column and footing drawing with cross sections
• Prepare a detailed reinforced concrete beam drawing with cross sections
• All drawings will be labelled and fully dimensioned in accordance with industry standards.

All above tasks will be incorporated in a small project based on typical workplace activities and covering all aspects of the requirements of completing a set of reinforced concrete drawings to industry standards

Student Self Directed:
Using the Internet students will research AS 1100 and AS 3600 from Standards Online to obtain an understanding of engineering principles, conventions and drawing practices required for preparing structural reinforced concrete drawings.
Students will be encouraged to view and analyse a variety of real-life projects (reinforced concrete drawings) to increase their understanding of the standard expected in a structural engineering drawing office.

Overview of Assessment

Context of assessment
This unit is most appropriately assessed in the computer laboratory using holistic assessment, based on a variety of simulated work tasks to set time frames.
Assessment Method
Assessment of this unit will involve completion of:
• A series of small assignments from within a project assessed in class and covering the basic elements of preparing structural reinforced concrete drawings to industry standards (100%)
The format of the assignments and tests will employ case studies and scenarios based on typical workplace activities addressing industry standards
The industry standards applied will reflect those stated in the curriculum document under the sub-heading : ‘Critical aspects of assessment’
