110 CEE Introduction to Civil Engineering Design Lecture Instructor: Edward S. Neumann Lab Instructors: Ahmad Kouhpaenejad (Computer) Veronica Villalobos (English skills) Jeffrey Jensen (Google Earth) Learning Outcomes Introduction to problem solving strategies used in design Preparation for working on teams Introduction to sustainability in design Introduction to Federal Acts that influence civil engineering design (land development) Development of writing skills Format -Lecture Assigned to one of ten teams Four or five students per team Each team is assigned a preliminary design problem related to site development Each problem represents a different civil engineering system, component, or process Each team prepares and submits three reports and one summary as a team, and Each team gives 3 oral presentations Assessment of Writing Skill First assignment will be completed by each individual Due in three weeks (Sept 10) 2 page discussion of the problem you have been assigned Turn in two copies I will grade one copy of the report based on content Our English consultant will read the second copy (she will not grade them for English) and identify your individual writing needs The English consultant will work with you during the lab portion on a one-by-one basis to improve your writing skills Improved report can be turned in again for re-grading of content on November 19 Prepared and graded before the 3 team reports Format Lecture (cont'd) 7 Lectures on problem solving strategies In-class presentations for the 3 reports 1. Problem Definition 2. Design Goals and Constraints 3. Alternatives Evaluation and Recommendations Supervised effort days Guest lectures on Climate Change and Sustainability 2 lectures on communications and team work Attendance will be taken daily in the lecture portion Every three unexcused absences will result in a drop of one letter grade Many absences have excusable reasons Health Car Family needs Work or on UNLV Official Business Religious holidays Let me and your team know if you are going to be absent If you have missed a class, email me your reason or contact me in class after you get back Don't wait until the end of the course I recognize any legitimate excuse, but unless you let me know, your absence will be counted as unexcused Format, Laboratories 2 lectures on sentence construction 2 lectures on Google Earth 11 lectures with assignments on MS Word MS Excel Math programming CAD MATLAB No labs the first week Format Laboratories, cont'd Teams have been organized by lab to facilitate project-related meetings and coordination The English consultant will meet with each of you individually after the lab assignment has been presented Lab assignments will be turned in to the lab instructor for grading Grading Four reports plus summary sheet 1300 points scaled to 800 points Individual effort 100 points Final exam 100 points (problem solving, civil engineering systems, Federal Acts and laws, sustainability) Lab portion 500 1500 points Total points for CEE 110 lecture plus lab Grading A AB+ B BC+ C CD F 90.0% and higher 89.0 to 89.9% 88.0 to 88.9% 80.0 to 87.99% 79.0 to 79.99% 78.0 to 78.99% 70.0 to 77.99% 69.0 to 69.99% 60.0 to 68.99% Below 60.0% Required Textbooks Development for Civil Engineers, 2nd ed.

Define the problem Identify the primary functions and related needs of the system, component, or process 2. Identify the goals and constraints of design Incorporate sustainability as appropriate 3. Conceptualize and Evaluate a range of alternatives Low level of physical detail Identify the tradeoffs Make recommendations for subsequent work Systems, Components, and Processes to be examined Land Use Plan Transportation Modes, Technology, and Networks Drainage and Flood Control Slope Stability and Erosion Control Water Supply Waste Management Geothermal Power Solar Power Wind Power Building Efficiency First Assignment Two double-space pages Written by individual students, not teams Introduction Description of system, component or process your team will study What are its primary functions? What are its performance requirements? What level of detail for a preliminary design? What are the sustainability issues related to its design? References Sustainability Issues Related to Design that You Must Discuss How does design affect sustainability? What are the reasons for pursuing a sustainable design? What are the challenges the design team will face? Due Date: Sept 10 Follow the outline on the handout ("Required Organization") Work to satisfy the grading rubric this will be used to compute your grade Read the references
