Module Learning Outcomes Assessed:
1. Demonstrate the basis of the engineering principles of reinforced concrete and structural steelwork design covered in the module.
2. Interpret design data in terms of the underlying engineering principles embodied in codes of practice.
3. Demonstrate an understanding of Health & Safety issues relating to designers responsibilities and an understanding of Construction Design Management issues.
1. You are expected to use the Coventry University APA style for referencing. For support and advice on this students can contact Centre for Academic Writing (CAW).
2. Please notify your registry course support team and module leader for disability support.
3. Any student requiring an extension or deferral should follow the university process as outlined here.
4. The University cannot take responsibility for any coursework lost or corrupted on disks, laptops or personal computer. Students should therefore regularly back-up any work and are advised to save it on the University system.
5. If there are technical or performance issues that prevent students submitting coursework through the online coursework submission system on the day of a coursework deadline, an appropriate extension to the coursework submission deadline will be agreed. This extension will normally be 24 hours or the next working day if the deadline falls on a Friday or over the weekend period. This will be communicated via your Module Leader.
6. You are encouraged to check the originality of your work by using the draft Turnitin links on Aula.
7. Collusion between students (where sections of your work are similar to the work submitted by other students in this or previous module cohorts) is taken extremely seriously and will be reported to the academic conduct panel. This applies to both courseworks and exam answers.
8. A marked difference between your writing style, knowledge and skill level demonstrated in class discussion, any test conditions and that demonstrated in a coursework assignment may result in you having to undertake a Viva Voce in order to prove the coursework assignment is entirely your own work.
9. If you make use of the services of a proof reader in your work you must keep your original version and make it available as a demonstration of your written efforts.
10. You must not submit work for assessment that you have already submitted (partially or in full), either for your current course or for another qualification of this university, with the exception of resits, where for the coursework, you maybe asked to rework and improve a previous attempt. This requirement will be specifically detailed in your assignment brief or specific course or module information. Where earlier work by you is citable, i.e. it has already been published/submitted, you must reference it clearly. Identical pieces of work submitted concurrently may also be considered to be self-plagiarism.
1. PROJECT AIMS ANDOBJECTIVES
• The project is designed to give you understanding of how steel framed buildings are protected from fire in buildings.
• It will also give you understanding of the theory behind progressive collapse and how buildings are designed to avoid this phenomenon.
• It will enable you to gain some hands-on experience of the fundamentals in conceptual structural design.
• It will demonstrate how the appropriate Standards and Codes of Practice are used.
• You will gain a basic understanding of the sustainability issues in construction.
• You will also gain a basic understanding of Health & Safety issues in construction.
• Encourage communications, interaction and teamwork between students and colleagues.
2. FORMATION OF GROUPS
• Students are to form their own groups of 6 students. The Module leader will allocate students who are unable to find a group to a group.
• As a group, you are required to meet regularly, preferably on a weekly basis to discuss design progress, associated tasks, monitor peer contribution and progress. You are encouraged to monitor attendance
at project meetings.
All groups are strongly encouraged to use these additional opportunities to ask questions and seek clarifications.
3. FINAL REPORT SUBMISSION
• The Final report is to be collated in a single PDF document which is to be uploaded through the submission link on Aula prior to the submission date stated previously.
• The information that is to be included within your report is as outlined in the marking scheme.
• The final submission is to be in the form of a single PDF file including a collation of all of the above.
