College of Engineering, Science and Technology

School of Building & Civil Engineering

Bachelor of Engineering (Civil)

with existing five colleges in Fiji. The merger of the six colleges brings to the

birth of the Fiji National University (FNU). Among the colleges of said

university are the College of Engineering, Science and Technology (CEST).

Bachelor of Engineering are offered in CEST including Bachelor of

Engineering (Civil), which is duly approved by the industry and FNU Senate.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) started in January year 2010.

On October 2011, CEST/FNU decided to adopt common units for year 1 of

Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and

Electrical Engineering. The introduction of the common units affected the

existing Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering programme and its

syllabus needs realignment/adjustment to cater for the common units.

The realignment of the whole Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) is now

presented in this document.

1.1 Rationale

FNU has a responsibility to the Nation, the student and to industry. The

student and industry in their turn have a responsibility to their chosen

profession. In these days of ever widening access to tertiary education

a bachelor’s degree is rapidly becoming the minimum qualification for

gaining entry to para-professional as well as to professional

employment. It is therefore seen as being of vital importance to all

parties to enable each student to reach the highest level of education of

which he or she is capable. In practice this means that the best

students should aspire to degree. This is the reason FNU offers a

Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) programme, to cater the needs of the

industry and to help aspiring and deserving students to fulfill their

dreams.

The curriculum documents have also been prepared to comply with the

requirements of The General Academic Statute of the Fiji Institute of

Technology and more recently the University Academic and Student

Regulations (UASR) of the Fiji National University (FNU).

associated with the application of modern management techniques.

generally facilitate the process of satisfying many legal requirements

to which the industry is obliged to conform.

whether through project/investigative work or through more traditional

teaching methods. Courses provide a mixture of theory to develop the

intellectual skills of the student, with hands-on activities to develop the

practical skills, which are vital to the practicing eengineers.

The minimum entry requirement for admission to Bachelor of

Engineering (Civil), is a pass in Fiji Form Seven with at least obtaining a

mark of 70 % in English, Physics, Mathematics, Technical Drawing or in

Chemistry.

The students are admitted directly in the second year with credit

transfer option on completion of F.N.U. Diploma in Civil Engineering or

equivalent from any other university/institution. The students with

Advanced Diploma in Civil Engineering or equivalent are admitted in the

third year of the engineering programme.

Enrolment in the programme is done after duly verifying all the

documents including transcripts, birth certificate, identification etc. Final

enrolment is confirmed only after he or she pays the full fees or makes

alternative arrangements with the finance department in writing.

To be considered for the award of the Bachelor of Civil Engineering the

candidate must have:

480 credit points.

3.1 General

semesters. The student will be expected to undergo 6 months

engineering work attachments within these eight semesters to

complete the programme. The programme consists of 35 units drawn

from levels 5 to 7. The maximum duration of the program is six years.

Students who do not complete this programme within six years should

be automatically considered that they do not complete the programme

and are not eligible for the award of the degree.

The majority of the units are compulsory as given in Table 1.

The choice of elective units is offered in year 3 and 4. Elective units

may be withdrawn if there are less than ten students in an elective unit.

The elective units may be changed from time to time to suit the

requirements of the industry/availability of the faculty member in the

college.

The programme is full-time based on 18 weeks per semester. Intakes

are at the beginning of each academic year and students proceed from

one semester to another until semester eight as mentioned in the

UASR.

Units are tabled according to the year/semester in the Programme

Descriptions (Table 1 and Table 2). Unit content instruction should be

delivered chronologically as itemized in the Unit Descriptors.

4.0 Assessment

4.1 Assessment Philosophy

Details are expanded below.

with evidence on which to base its recommendations regarding the award

of grades. The primary tool for summative assessment is by final

examination. These will normally be of either two or three hours duration as

appropriate to the subject matter. An additional ten minutes reading time

will be allowed. In preparing examination papers, consideration will be

given to the level of attainment of the candidates. The aim being to move

the candidates progressively from closed type problem solving towards a

more open ended style of examination question. The aim of formative

assessment is to guide and encourage the student to meet the

performance criteria set out in each of the unit descriptors. Its primary

purpose is therefore educational. The primary tool for formative

assessment is the assignment. Assignments are used to develop the

students’ problem solving skills and to provide guidance as to the level of

attainment expected. Marks for assignment work reflect the degree to

which the student has met the performance criteria. Comments on the

student’s submission indicate how the work could be improved to better

meet those criteria. Assignments also form the basis of the tutorial

programme where the emphasis is on active rather than passive learning.

Laboratory exercises are an essential part of the assessment procedure.

They are assessed on the basis of a report of the work carried out and the

conclusions drawn. As part of the exercise, the student is expected to

conduct a literature search and review.

All units require that a student obtain a total mark of 50%. In units with final

examinations the student must also obtain the stated minimum mark in the

examination. Laboratory assignments must be completed to an acceptable

standard. Attendance at laboratory sessions and completion of laboratory

reports are compulsory.

5.1 Introduction

the aims and objectives of the programme. In the initial stages of the

process of intellectual development the student will be guided towards the

achievement of a successful outcome to each activity. In later stages

however, this guidance will be reduced so as to encourage the student to

become a self-motivated independent learner.

5.2 Methods

the solution of both closed and open-ended problems in engineering

design and construction. Classroom-based activities will emphasise active

participation in the learning process. In the early stages students will

participate in tradition problem solving activities. Students will be expected

to supply reasoned arguments in support of their approaches to solving

assignment problems. Later on and as a pre-requisite to solving more

open-ended problems, students will be encouraged to extend their

knowledge base through directed study of externally available resource

material. In the final semester the students will be required to carry out a

design project based on civil engineering practice. The project will be

directed towards an actual engineering problem in Fiji and will require

integration of knowledge from different parts of the programme syllabus.

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation

(UASR). All students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves

with all academic matters.

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following

steps to get redress of their grievance.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and

reassessment. Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to

the HOD. The HOD will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

33

Final Exam: The student can apply for re-check of the grade as per the procedures laid down in the UASR.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your

work is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In

more serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism

may even lead to your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing

service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and

adding proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly

your own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation

(UASR). All students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves

with all academic matters.

44

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following

steps to get redress of their grievance.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and

reassessment. Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to

the HOD. The HOD will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Final Exam: The student can apply for re-check of the grade as per the procedures laid down in the UASR.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your

work is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In

more serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism

may even lead to your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing

service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and

adding proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly

your own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation (UASR).

All students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves with all

academic matters.

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following steps

to get redress of their grievance.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and

reassessment. Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to

the HOD. The HOD will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Final Exam: The student can apply for re-check of the grade as per the procedures laid down in the UASR.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your

work is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In

more serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may

even lead to your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing

service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and

adding proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly

your own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

1.0 Welcome

We welcome you to this exciting unit which was designed to help you develop a solid foundation in

understanding DC and AC circuit functions and analysis, together with applications in both Analogue and

Digital Electronics.

79

The purpose of this course is to provide a solid foundation in understanding DC and AC circuit functions

and analysis, with applications in Analogue Electronics and Digital Electronics, required by all electrical

engineering paraprofessionals, in all areas of specilisations. This course extends the skills in basic DC

circuit analysis in Electrical Principles and provides a foundation in DC and AC circuit analysis for use in

other units. In the delivery of this unit, emphasis will be placed on the integration of the ‘theoretical’ and

‘Practical’ aspects of digital electronics. In particular, this will involve an integrated approach to the

analytical and experimental evaluation of devices and circuits and the development of skills in the use of

instruments and measurement techniques.

On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

1.2.1 Describe circuit configurations, characteristics and performance, using standard terminology and computer

based circuit description languages

1.2.2 Apply network theorems and related analytical techniques to evaluate the steady state performance of DC and

AC circuits

1.2.3 Select and use the appropriate equation to determine the steady state and transient behavior of simple R-L &

R-C circuits, with a step input voltage

1.2.4 Sketch and interprets symbols and diagrams to represent devices and circuits within the scope of this subject

– using accepted standards

1.2.5 Select and apply appropriate analytical techniques, including computer based tools, to evaluate the

performance of both analog and digital electronic devices and circuits.

1.2.6 Use both Boolean Algebra and Karnaugh map for Boolean functions simplification

1.2.7 Report the performance and characteristics of electronic devices and circuits, using accepted

terminology and appropriate performance parameters

1.2.8 Explain, through examples and specific applications, the function of basic analog and digital electronic

devices and the operation of simple circuits and systems in which they are used

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation (UASR). All

students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves with all

academic matters.

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following steps to

get redress of their grievance.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and reassessment.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work is

found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more serious

cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even lead to

your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and adding

proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly your

own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation (UASR). All

students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves with all

academic matters.

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following steps to

get redress of their grievance.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and reassessment.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work is

found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more serious

cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even lead to

your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and adding

proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly your

own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation (UASR).

All students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves with all

academic matters.

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following steps to

get redress of their grievance.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and reassessment.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work

is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more

serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even

lead to your expulsion from the university.

131

Actions that constitute plagiarism

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing

service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and adding

proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly your

own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and

reassessment. Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to

the HOD. The HOD will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your

work is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In

more serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may

even lead to your expulsion from the university.

HOD. The HOD will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work

is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more

serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even

lead to your expulsion from the university.

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following steps to

get redress of their grievance.

193

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and reassessment.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work is

found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more serious

cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even lead to your

expulsion from the university.

The academic conduct of the students is governed by the University Academic and Students Regulation (UASR).

All students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves with all

academic matters.

Should a student be dissatisfied with either the internal or external assessment, they can take the following steps to

get redress of their grievance.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work

is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more

serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even

lead to your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing

service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and adding

proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

Numerical Analysis plays an indispensable role in solving real life mathematical, physical and engineering

problems. Numerical computations have been in use for centuries even before digital computers appeared on the

scene. Great Mathematicians like Gauss, Newton, Lagrange, Fourier and many others developed numerical

techniques. Numerical analysis is an approach to solving complex mathematical problems using simple

approximating operations and carrying out an analysis on the resulting errors. Major topics in numerical analysis

include interpolation, numerical differentiation and integration.

All students must obtain a copy of the UASR from the FNU academic office and familiarize themselves with all

academic matters.

get redress of their grievance.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and reassessment.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work

is found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more

serious cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even

lead to your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing

service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and adding

proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly your

own work.

Internal Assessment: The student can refer the work back to the unit coordinator for checking and reassessment.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work is

found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more serious

cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even lead to

your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and adding

proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly your

own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

Following this reassessment, if the student is still dissatisfied, the student may refer the work to the HOD. The HOD

will then appoint another lecturer to examine the work and result will then stand.

293

Final Exam: The student can apply for re-check of the grade as per the procedures laid down in the UASR.

Plagiarism is taking another person's words or ideas and using them as if they were your own. It can be either

deliberate or accidental. Plagiarism is taken very seriously in higher education. If even a small section of your work is

found to have been plagiarised, it is likely that you will be assigned a mark of '0' for that assignment. In more serious

cases, it may be necessary for you to repeat the course completely. In some cases, plagiarism may even lead to

your expulsion from the university.

1. Downloading and turning in a paper from the Web including a Web page or a paper from an essay writing service.

2. Copying and pasting phrases, sentences, or paragraphs into your paper without showing a quotation and adding

proper citation.

3. Paraphrasing or summarising a source’s words or ideas without proper citation.

4. Including a graph, table or picture from a source without proper citation.

5. Getting so much help from a tutor or writing helper that the paper or part of the paper is no longer honestly your

own work.

6. Turning in previously written work when that practice is prohibited by your instructor.

1.0 Welcome

We welcome you to this course and hope that you will find it enriching and interesting.

The aim of the unit is to expose the student to learn structural design and analysis of three (3) storey

reinforced concrete building. The design includes the preparation of one complete set of architectural,

structural, plumbing and electrical plans needed to construct a three storey concrete building.

Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:

3.1 Teaching/Learning Method

The unit is a full time class-based unit; it can be conducted 4 hours every lecture week with the

unit lecturer supervising, encouraging and guiding the student using the individual tutorial

technique on the things that should be done to complete the design. In this teaching method the student

is required to defend his structural design analysis pursuant to the internationally accepted Code of

Engineering practice. The tutorial sessions will serve as an actual training for the students to experience

the inter-personal relationships he will encounter in the construction industry. The series of tutorial

sessions culminates in the design presentation which should be done in front of the Design Panel. The

student should convince the Design Panel on the accuracy and structural reliability of his design analysis.

To do this the student need not only to show the soundness of his solution but must also prove that

his/her design analysis satisfy the requirement of Service Limit State and Strength Limit State of the

Engineering Design Code he/she adopted. The student must also identify the beneficiaries of the

proposed works. These beneficiaries may be private individuals, groups, or commercial enterprises or

any government owned or controlled corporations. Whichever is the case the benefits must be clearly

stated and the object of the benefit clearly identified.

The Civil design practice is scheduled on year4 semester 2 of the programme, and the student

might experience time constraint problem in completing the design. To overcome the time constraint

problem, students who have been able to get employment in the industry/work attachment are

encouraged to seek and discuss their design with their line manager/supervising engineer.

8. Electrical Plans

The structural design analysis should be done using manual computation and not by the use of any

software computer program. It is deemed important that the student learn first the manual and

conventional means of computing deflection, moment, shear and torsion requirement before use of any

software computer program. This will give him/her first hand information and sufficient theoretical

knowledge needed in the mastery of structural analysis. Structural analysis and computation of reactions,

shear and moment shall be done by Frame analysis using either the Moment Distribution, Slope

Deflection Method or any elastic analysis learned by the students during his/her previous academic

period. The results should be checked and compared with the result of the structural analysis by using

computer software program.

In the analysis of moment, shear and torsion, the building layout should

properly indicate the two main directions of the building as North- South and East-West (N-S and E-

W).The building should be arranged on a regular grid of columns .The grid lines in the N-S direction

should be labeled A, B, C, D and E and 1,2,3,4 and 5 in the E-W direction. The location of the stairwells,

lifts, service shafts and toilets should also be properly indicated in the floor plan.

a) Appropriate concrete grade and steel cover for beams, slabs, columns and footings

shall be done pursuant to durability and fire resistance requirement of the Service Limit State of the

provisions of the Design Code adopted by the student.

b) Bar detailing requirement shall be based on the Design code adopted by the student.

c) Strength reduction factor for beam, slab and column shall be based from the

design Code adopted by the student.

d) Superimposed dead load and live load for beams and column shall be based on the

minimum requirement pursuant to the Design Code the students had adopted.

298

3. Method of analysis

Before designing the foundation footings, the student should gather complete

information on shear strength parameters of the foundation soil for the whole building. This is necessary

to determine the safe allowable bearing capacity of the foundation. The shear strength of the foundation

shall determine whether the foundation will be designed as footings on pile, independent strip footings or

as mat foundation.

shall be designed one by one. The section and reinforcing steel bar details shall be shown on the

structural plans for each beam column and footing.

The student shall personally present his structural design project for marking purposes and physical oral

presentation is a compulsory process. Failure of the student to present his work on the scheduled time or

any time extension granted to him, shall be deemed as implied withdrawal from the unit and the student

shall be required to re- enrol again the unit.

Two (2) Copies of the Design Project Report should be submitted, one for the copy of the Lecturer,

another for the reference of the candidate for his use during Final presentation.

Upon completion of the project presentation by the student, there will be question and answer session

with the unit lecturer acting as chief examiner. The aim is to determine first that the project is the student

own work and secondly that the student has a broad understanding of what has been done and why. To

achieve this, the examiner can select randomly from the project report and ask the student to explain a

passage or drawing or justify a value or an assumption. In this way the examiner will soon gain an

impression of how well versed the student is in the contents of the project report.
