Method of delivery: Face to face lectures, tutorials, and laboratories. Study time: The average study time is 12 hours per week, including class attendance, reading, and homework problems. Lecture/tutorial times Lecture: Monday 1630-1830 in 67.107 Podcasts available on e-learning. Tutorials & Laboratories: Tutorials begin week 1 Labs begin week 2 for all. Consult on-line enrolment
Changes made to this subject in 2011 as a result of student feedback and regular review by staff 1. Laboratories have been revised. 4 new experiments have been implemented and lab class sizes have been further reduced to enhance opportunities for hands-on activities. Larger rooms are being used for the lab classes. 2. All the good bits have been retained e.g. weekly quizzes

Attendance Requirements The University Code of Practice Students states that it is the responsibility of students to attend all lectures, tutorials, seminars and laboratory work as stipulated in the subject outline. Attendance at laboratory work exercises is compulsory. Students who are repeating ENGG251 and have successfully completed all the laboratories can apply to have their Lab marks carried forward from 2009 or 2010. To apply for this exemption, email timmc@uow.edu.au before the end of week 1. Text book: Mechanics of Materials, 7th SI Edition, by James Gere and Barry Goodno, Publisher Cengage Learning 2009 UoW Library Catalogue number: 620.112/74 Recommended reading: Many texts and reference materials are available in the University Library and on the world wide web. E.g Mechanics of materials / R.C. Hibbeler Prentice-Hall International (UK), 2000 UoW Library catalogue number 620.112/51 Additional materials: Simple drawing equipment (compass, protractor) University and Faculty Policies Students should make themselves aware of the University and/or Faculty Policies regarding plagiarism, academic consideration, supplementary examinations and other educational issues and student matters. Further information can be found in the Faculty Policy document available from the EEC or at: http://www.uow.edu.au/eng/about/policy/UOW004034.html ASSESSMENT GUIDELINES Your final subject mark will be calculated from the following: Tutorials: 15% objectives (i), (ii), (iv) Mid-Session test: 15% objectives (i), (ii), (iv) Laboratories 10% objective (iii) Final Examination: 60% objectives (i), (ii), (iv) TUTORIAL ASSESSMENT: Tutorials begin in Week 1 Bring your text book to tutorials A set hand-in problem will be given out normally 30 minutes before the end of the tutorial. They must be individually completed and submitted during the tutorial in which you are enrolled. Only the best 10 of these will be used to determine the tutorial mark. Those not submitted in your tutorial will be awarded a mark of 0. You may be excluded from submitting the hand-in question if you do not attend for the whole tutorial. From time to time peer assessment may be used. The hand-in problem is to be completed under examination conditions. To foster a habit of undertaking preparatory work ahead of the tutorial, you will be allowed to refer to one single sided A4 sheet
ENGG 251 23 Feb 2011

of paper containing your own hand-written notes (a cheat sheet). This must have been entirely prepared prior to the tutorial and handed to the tutor on arrival. It must have your name and student number clearly written at the top of the sheet. It will be returned to you as you commence the hand-in question. Cheat sheets must not contain any numerical solutions. No cheat sheets will be accepted after the first 15 minutes of the tutorial. They are to be submitted together with the hand-in question at the end of the tutorial. It is suggested that you bring a copy of the cheat sheet with you to refer to during the tutorial. Worked solutions to all of the tutorial questions for each week will be available in the week following that tutorial. MID-SESSION QUIZ: Held during Week 6 lecture (Monday 16.30-18.30) in the lecture room. You will be allowed 1 A4 sheet of paper only with your own hand-written notes on one side only to refer to. No other written material will be allowed apart from an official dictionary. LABORATORIES: These are compulsory. A Lab manual is to be completed during that laboratory class. You must enrol in one of the 8 available Practical Classes through SOLS on-line enrolment. Once enrolled, you will be assigned to a lab group and given a schedule for undertaking the experiments. You must follow the timetable for that group as indicated on the Weekly Timetable which will be posted on e-learning. Lab manuals will be checked each week to verify that they are up to date. The completed lab manual must be handed in to EEC one week after your final experiment. Marks for labs will be allocated as follows: 4/10 will be for keeping the manual up to date and attending all labs. 6/10 will be for a detailed marking of ONE experiment from your lab manual. The experiment chosen for marking will be decided by the coordinators in week 10. FINAL EXAM: This will be closed book. A formula sheet will be provided as part of the exam paper. The contents of that sheet will be disclosed at the Week 13 lecture. NOTE: A mark of less than 40% in the final exam or failure to complete the practical work will result in a Technical Fail (TF) being recorded as your grade. Marks are not normally scaled or modified in this subject. Late Work: Apart from the final exam, assessment work will normally be conducted during lectures, laboratories or tutorials. Late submission of the laboratory manual in week 12 will result in a deduction of 10% of the maximum mark per day. Plagiarism Students are responsible for submitting original work for assessment, without plagiarising or cheating, abiding by the University's policy on plagiarism as set out in the University Handbook under Universities Policy Directory and in Faculty Handbooks and subject guides. Plagiarism has led to the expulsion from the University. Further information on plagiarism can be found in the Faculty Policy document, with full details available at: http://www.uow.edu.au/about/policy/UOW058648.html Details of referencing system to be used in written work Please see http://www.library.uow.edu.au/resourcesbytopic/UOW026621.html Assignment Submission at EEC Weekly tests are submitted in class. For assignments that are required to be handed in and collected from EEC, you will need to generate a cover sheet on the web and attach this to your assignment. Hand in the assignment to EEC and the staff will barcode scan your assignment cover sheet. You will then receive a receipt by email. When your assignment has been marked, you will also be emailed that it is ready to be picked up from EEC. On collecting your assignment, EEC will barcode scan your student ID card. To generate the cover sheet, go to:

Login: student Password: coverit If you are required to work as a group and are to submit a group assignment or report, nominate a team leader to take the responsibility of generating the cover sheet, handing in the assignment and collecting it back from EEC. Only the team leader will be able to collect the assignment. The team leader should select the <Group Cover> option and ensure that the other team members names are entered in the appropriate field.
