National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

 National Element Code & Title: EAC010B Analyse and design flexural members (complex) Element: 1. Design beams and one-way slabs (single span and continuous) to satisfy strength and serviceability requirements. Performance Criteria: 1.1 Selection is made of the minimum effective depth of a beam or slab required to satisfy serviceability.1.2 Strength design is carried out.1.3 The effective geometric properties of a beam or slab are calculated.1.4 The deflection for short term and long term loading is calculated using simplified and deemed-to-comply procedures.1.5 Results are compared with Code limits. Element: 2. Design two-way slabs supported by rigid beams and walls to satisfy strength and serviceability requirements Performance Criteria: 2.1 Calculations are carried out to design a two-way rectangular panel for strength and serviceability requirements.2.2 Required reinforcement including crack control reinforcement is detailed. Element: 3. Proportion footings and design axially loaded footings Performance Criteria: 3.1 Plan dimensions of combined or strap footing is determined for the site conditions.3.2 Calculations are carried out to design a square or rectangular pad footing for axial column load.3.3 Calculations are carried out to design a rectangular combined footing supporting two columns.3.4 The column to footing load transfer is evaluated. Element: 4. Design short and slender columns Performance Criteria: 4.1 Calculations are carried out to design short columns with various configurations for biaxial bending.4.2 Calculations are carried out to design slender columns with various configurations for uniaxial bending.

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.
* A project covering elements 1, 2, 3 & 4 comprising a multi-storey reinforced concrete office building using industry drawings.
* A two-hour end-of-semester examination covering elements 1, 2, 3 & 4
