SCENARIO:

You are an assistant engineer working for XXX Sdn Bhd (give your own name). The
company specialty is designing steel structures. MADINA food factory is request to build
another water tank near existing water tank to support their production. The given time frame
to complete the project is a month. You and your team had been assigned to propose a design
of a steel frame structure for an additional water tank for the factory. The frame is required to
support a water tank of 75000 litters. The height of the frame must be at least 10 m above
ground level. Hence, provide a complete design of the steel frame by considering the water
tank capacity as dead load. The design must include steel beam, column, and connection
design according to EC 3 and concrete pad footing design according to EC 2. Prepare a
comprehensive technical report that includes the selection of material, list of material
properties, design calculation and structural drawings to your client.

OBJECTIVES:

This activity requires your team to take an actual sample picture of existing water tank and
provide a sketch of the steel frame and then propose the suitable member sizes and performed
a complete checking for all relevant members according to EC3 & EC2. All findings must be
presented in proper report which includes actual structural drawing using AutoCAD and must
be submitted on week 14.

ASSESSMENT:

Upon completion of the design checking, write a comprehensive technical report, provide and
AutoCAD Drawings about your team’s finding. The compilation must be in sequence
according to design step and calculation must be hand written in design sheet.

Note :
1) Number of group members : 4-5 students
2) Submission: Hardcopy of design compilation and drawings on week 14.
Allocation of Roles and Teamwork
1. Analyze the tasks to be performed and divide among your team who to perform the tasks.
