Q1:

How would you explain the “Duty of Care” of the Design Engineer to a marketing executive, or to a legal representative, or to a business manager? Is there one explanation that all could understand and agree?

Q2: Why is it important to follow the Engineers Australia Code of Ethics in your engineering design work? Is there less need to abide by the Engineers Australia Code of Ethics if you are not a member of Engineers Australia?

In a soil investigation for a construction project, two soil types were identified with the following parameters (g = 9.81 m/s2):

Soil Type

Depth below ground level (m)

Unit weights (kN/m3)

Other parameters

Soil 1 (sand)

6.5

g = 17 and gsat = 17.5

E =15000 kN/m2

Soil 2 (overconsolidated clay)

11.5

gsat = 20

e0=0.69, Cc=0.25, Cs=0.05

If the ground water level is at 2.5 m below the ground level, and the initial void ratio of the overconsolidated clay layer is 0.69, find the expected settlement in the clay layer only due to a proposed foundation that should imposes a pressure of 60 kN/m2 on the mid-depth of the clay layer. The overconsolidation pressure is 125 kN/m2. What is the the total settlement due to both the sand and clay layers (to the mid-height of the clay layer)?

Jakes on the Water is planning to expand their restaurant to a larger restaurant called Jakes on the Bay. The existing septic tank has a volume of 5.0 m3 and the existing tile field has a trench area of 200.0 m2 . If the anticipated wastewater production from the Jakes on the Bay is 4,000 L/d, will they have to expand either the septic tank or the tile field or both? Assume the soil is sandy loam.
