Introduction
This unit comprises lectures, tutorials and laboratory activities, all of which you should attend. You are also advised to engage in self-study, reading the lecture notes, doing the tutorial examples and carrying out the assessed tasks.

Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students can: 1 Recognise fluid phenomena and explain their causes, especially with regard to viscous and inviscid flows 2 Characterise fluid behaviour and its effects using non-dimensional groups 3 Apply basic conservation principles in Fluid Mechanics 4 Model simple flow situations to make estimates of fluid forces 5 Perform design calculations for engineering applications that involve fluid flow Graduate Attributes addressed

Detailed information on assessment tasks
1. Assessed Group Exercise (one submission per group) Three student-hours of assessment You will work in a group of (ideally) five students. You are encouraged to choose the group membership yourselves so that you work with students who have shared interests. The group will investigate one topic from a list that is mounted on FLECS. This activity permits you to pursue your particular interests in real-world Fluid Mechanics and relate the application that you choose to the fundamental Fluid Mechanics being studied in the unit. A mini-project briefing will be given in one lecture slot to complement the briefing sheet that is mounted on FLECS. The mini-project submission date is the end of week 12 (18th May). 2. Assessed Laboratory (only one laboratory report marked) Nine student-hours of assessment = 2x2(attendance)+5(write-up) You need to take two laboratories, one sometime in the first half of semester, the second sometime in the second semester depending upon the session for which signed up (for each of the two occasions). A formal report is required only for the second laboratory activity. However, you must attend and complete the first laboratory because it contributes a part of the mark that will be awarded for the second (assessed) laboratory. Your report must be submitted two weeks after you undertake the second laboratory. (Note that special compensation will be made for students taking the laboratory in Weeks 8&9, before the pipe-flow lecture material has been covered and discussed). 3. Class test One student-hour of assessment This covers the topics of Chapters 1-3 of the lecture notes and will take place in Week 5 (30th March). The questions are of an identical format to those in the examination. A previous years test and model solutions are posted on FLECS as an example of what to expect. This test provides with an opportunity to practice your performance under examination conditions and, more importantly, make you aware of how you are performing in the unit. Full solutions will be posted subsequently on FLECS so that, if necessary, you can undertake remedial work. 4. Two-hour examination Two student-hours of assessment The examination format will be in exactly the same as that used in previous years (see FLECS for an example) with a corresponding range of topics and level of difficulty. Questions are also of a similar level of difficulty to those practised in the tutorial sheets.

Fair assessment through moderation


Moderation describes a quality assurance process to ensure that assessments are appropriate to the learning outcomes, and that student work is evaluated consistently by assessors. Minimum standards for the moderation of assessment are described in the Assessment Manual, available from policies.curtin.edu.au/policies/teachingandlearning.cfm

Late penalties
Late Assessment Policy This ensures that the requirements for submission of assignments and other work to be assessed are fair, transparent, equitable, and that penalties are consistently applied. 1. All assessments which students are required to submit will have a due date and time specified on the Unit Outline. 2. Accepting late submission of assignments or other work will be determined by the unit coordinator or Head of School and will be specified on the Unit Outline. 3. If late submission of assignments or other work is not accepted, students will receive a penalty of 100% after the due date and time ie a zero mark for the late assessment. 4. If late submission of assignments or other work is accepted, students will be penalised by ten percent per calender day for a late assessment submission (eg a mark equivalent to 10% of the total allocated for the assessment will be deducted from the marked value for every day that the assessment is late). This means that an assignment worth 20 will have two marks deducted per calender day late. Hence if it was handed in three calender days late and marked as 12/20, the student would receive 6/20. An assessment more than seven calender days overdue will not be marked. Work submitted after this time (due date plus seven days) may result in a Fail - Incomplete (F-IN) grade being awarded for the unit.

Pass requirements
To pass this unit you must achieve an overall grade/mark greater than or equal to 5/50.

Referencing style
Students should use the Chicago referencing style when preparing assignments. More information can be found on this style from the Library web site: library.curtin.edu.au.

Plagiarism
Plagiarism occurs when work or property of another person is presented as one's own, without appropriate acknowledgement or referencing. Plagiarism is a serious offence. For more information refer to academicintegrity.curtin.edu.au.

Plagiarism Monitoring
Work submitted may be subjected to a plagiarism detection process, which may include the use of systems such as 'Turnitin'. For further information, see academicintegrity.curtin.edu.au/students/turnitin.cfm.

Additional information
The Faculty Guidelines for late submission are available on the FLECS site for this unit and note that the 100% penalty is applied for late submission in Fluid Mechanics 230. You should therefore submit what you have done on an assignment (even if it is not complete) by the the submission deadline.

Enrolment:
It is your responsibility to ensure that your enrolment is correct - you can check your enrolment through the eStudent option on OASIS, where you can also print an Enrolment Advice.

Supplementary/Deferred Exams:
Supplementary and deferred examinations will be held at a date to be advised. Notification to students will be made after the Board of Examiners meeting via the Official Communications Channel (OCC) in OASIS. It is the student's responsibility to check their OASIS account on a weekly basis for official Curtin correspondence. If your results show that you have been awarded a supplementary or deferred exam you should immediately check your OASIS email for details.

Disability
Students with a disability or medical condition (e.g. mental health condition, chronic illness, physical or sensory disability, learning disability) are encouraged to seek advice from Disability Services www.disability.curtin.edu.au. A Disability Advisor will work with you and liaise with staff to identify strategies to assist you to meet unit (including fieldwork education) and course requirements, where possible. It is important to note that the staff of the university may not be able to meet your needs if they are not informed of your individual circumstances.
