You will be required to apply appropriate design methods and decision making techniques – and you will have to fully document the whole process leading to your solution. During your studies throughout your degree. The alternatives you discard after due consideration may be as useful to the process as the one you ultimately choose. of course. The course content is presented in three modules in two study books.  You should have sufficient drafting skills to be able to present the solution graphically in sufficient details to allow drafters to prepare working drawings. improved safety. as future engineers.

The typical sequence of real-life events that the course deals with is:  You are faced with a problem. ENG1100 will get you started at developing those skills. costed. politics. new manufacturing techniques. energy efficiency. Note! The study of both the design and the drafting segments of this course should proceed concurrently.) This course is comprised of two discrete components.

I hope you find the course interesting. Drafting requirements To allow you to communicate your design graphically and meaningfully. Those who have not studied drafting before should work carefully through Module 1 attempting the activities prescribed. It should be noted that ENG1100 only requires 50% of total marks for the course to achieve a passing grade. They may wish to use it as a refresher course. © University of Southern Queensland . You must also be able to interpret a drawing in any of the engineering disciplines.: Module 1 – Basic drafting techniques Module 2 – Specialist drafting techniques ● Mechanical ● Civil ● Electrical ● Surveying In this course all drafting will be done in two methods: 1. There is no need to submit them for correction unless you wish to ask questions about them. The drafting section comprises two modules. Every endeavour is made to allow you to put your own emphasis on the course according to the branch of engineering you are studying as your major. Those who have studied drafting before may not need to study module 1 in this course. using a 2D CAD program. at a basic level. a pass in every individual assessment item is not required.8 ENG1100 – Introduction to engineering design Note Module 3 presents the material appropriate to the design component. These activities are formative only. you need considerable drafting skill and you must exhibit a high level of understanding of the drafting techniques and conventions. freehand sketching 2. Therefore this course gives instruction. Survey and Electrical Drafting. Civil. viz. in Mechanical. Refer to Study Book 1 Section 1.1 for further information on sketching and CAD techniques. Modules 2 and 3 must be studied by all students in this course. Assessment covers all aspects of the course and this reflects the intention to give students exposure to the various disciplines. Please note: Module 1 is specifically designed for those who have not previously studied technical drawing to at least Year 10 (Qld High Schools) level. However. Assignment 1 which covers basic drafting and design is to be completed by all students.

This software is reliable and runs easily on most computers in the vast majority of cases. Freehand sketching is still a very important skill to acquire. It is recommended to use the free AutoCAD version available from> (Follow the Free Software for Students links on the site. In the course we require you to use a computer-aided drafting package for the drafting component. This may be achieved in several ways including: ● use of CAD in your workplace ● possession of your own copy of a CAD package ● download software from Autodesk <http://students. You may be able to locate a CAD package through that avenue. Some people prefer to freehand sketch drawings before creating them on CAD. Use the ‘Forum for problems with downloading/installing AutoCAD’ on StudyDesk to seek advice or ask questions) ● other access – through friends. It is desirable that students should have access to a 2D CAD software package of industry standard. Another alternative is for you to check out the Internet. We hope for a high standard of work from students. Some must be seen as essential and some as very useful aids though not essential. Ray Malpress Course examiner Course resources Study materials for the drafting component Equipment Every job is made easier if you have the correct tools. The tools used in drafting are many and varied. Engineering personnel need to be able to provide a freehand sketch of a solution to a problem to assist visualising ideas and communicating them to others. You will be required to produce freehand sketches as part of Assignment 1. etc. On behalf of the teaching team I wish you an enjoyable and rewarding study. Remember though you will need to familiarise yourself with the package you select and that it will need to cover drawings in all the areas covered in the course specifications. so submit your very best efforts for assessment. All assignments are to be submitted electronically via StudyDesk – more details for electronic submission are given at the beginning of each assignment.ENG1100 – Introduction to engineering design 9 The teaching staff enjoy their involvement in the course and are happy to discuss any aspect of the course with you. © University of Southern Queensland .

Printable versions of grid sketching sheets can be downloaded from StudyDesk. Staedler. Text Engineering drawing (8th edn) by Boundy. When you purchase your text.g. you can use some fine grit emery paper to finish the point. Note that all of these require careful sharpening of the lead. Drawing paper An ideal medium on which to produce a freehand sketch is prepared sketching paper either orthogonal (squared) or isometric depending on the sketch to be prepared. B or 2B Pencil sharpener You may use any pencil sharpener appropriate. This is a McGraw-Hill publication and is the source of many of the exercises you will be required to attempt. Mars ● Drafting clutch pencil with 2 mm lead ● Fineline propelling/clutch pencil. Pencils Acceptable variations include: ● Standard wooden pencil – but buy a good brand. You are expected to read Boundy until you are familiar with its contents. Experiment with options including a blade (such as a craft knife) to prepare the point. some sketching paper is included – it may be enough for your purposes. Eraser You will need a good quality eraser and a way to maintain a reasonable wedge-shaped end for precise use. Don’t be satisfied with a result from an ill-prepared pencil when a better drawing can be achieved with a little extra effort preparing the pencil. In the extreme. These students will find the page numbers and exercise numbers will differ in earlier editions of the text.

Freehand sketches for Assignment 1 must be completed on the grid paper provided on the Study Desk. Not all mechanical sharpeners are good for sharpening drafting pencils. Many students may be using earlier editions of the text. e. Pay attention to the effectiveness of the pencil you are using.

The Study Book has the basics. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you must have a technical person to solve a technical problem. It is recommended that you read extra material on conceptual design. ergonomics and design methods.ENG1100 – Introduction to engineering design 11 Study materials for the design component There is no set text for the design part of this course. Some Selected readings are available in the Useful Links block on ENG1100 Studydesk.

Your task is to assess the trend in battery powered electric lawn mowers. Your analysis should discuss the following: ● NEED – What is the need that led to the development of the piece of equipment? Is there a true ‘need’ for battery powered mowers or are they an option supplied in response to market demand? If you identify another reason for the trend or than need. Compare with internal combustion engine powered mowers. Some of these drivers are the need for (or development in) safety. Identify what characteristics are required in the features of a battery powered lawn mower in comparison to an engine powered one. This improving battery technology is making battery powered equipment serious competitors for equipment once powered by internal combustion engines. we stated that design is driven by change and need. Note: Please consider the different marks associated with each section in the marking criteria as a guide to the significance of each aspect to help write your report. This is even extending to cars. ● EVOLUTION OF DESIGN – How did features of battery bowered mower evolve from their first introduction to their present forms? What were the drivers for the changes? Consider the historical development and recent trends. © University of Southern Queensland . Also indicate the number of words used in the report. economic trends and technology improvements.

All balloons must be attached to piping in a way that allows them to be changed without removing or apply ducting tape. 5. you will probably inflate the balloons by mouth. Up to four balloons can be used to store the pressurized air. Your structure is to sit on the surface and not be held in place by adhesive action or clamps. The device is to use air as an energy source to suspend the ball in a jet or activate or actuate the device and/or tower in any way to achieve the optimum bounce distance. but any additional materials must be EXACTLY the same type and replacement materials will be at the team’s expense. You are free to ask for clarifications or to defend your © University of Southern Queensland . consider the hygiene of the mouthpiece. You may replace materials if you choose to alter a design or need to replace components from a failure. The distance achieved. between the second bounce and a mark defining the limit distance of 300 mm from the base is the measured criteria for performance to achieve the competitive score. The supply of air to the device and/or tower is to be controlled by a ¼ turn valve. The above constraints on your construction technique are aimed at producing a fair competition and provide a basis for your approach to designing your structure/device.ENG1100 – Introduction to engineering design Standard spherical balloons (max of four used at one time) 13 mm dia x 1 mm wall thickness very low pressure polythene pipe (low pressure garden/drip irrigation pipe) 8 1m 13 mm polythene inline barbed ¼ turn valve 2 13 mm polythene barbed tee 4 12 mm clear PVC hose 300 x 300 x 12 sheet of plywood 29 0. The goal is to achieve the maximum bounce distance possible. The balloons need to be inflated in a safe way. then attaching to your device is not allowed. we will provide a compressor to inflate the balloons. it is required to first bounce within 300 mm of the edge of the base. If more than one person inflates the balloons. On the day of the tests. balloons will be supplied and are the only balloons that can be used for the tests. On the day of the test. The structure is be free standing and no aids to help retain the base in position are allowed. Ensure that you do not exceed your capacity to inflate the balloons. There are no bounds on the way you construct your tower and device to deploy the ping pong ball. You also need to use one of the ¼ valves to hold the air in the balloons.5 m 1 Consider the following with reference to Figure 1 2. The base must be positioned 300 mm from the first bounce limit marker. Your structure is to be built using the plywood as a base. 4. in the normal direction.
