This is an architectural engineering course that will educate the students with the importance of water –its supply and conservation, as used in the plumbing system of a building. This will cover the fundamentals of plumbing and sanitary engineering principles on various stages of works involved in planning, designing and implementation of water supply, distribution and usage to a building. The coverage starts at the study of water and the human needs, followed by public water sources and water treatment processes, private water supply sources (including rainwater harvesting), elements of plumbing, plumbing fixtures and accessories, domestic cold water supply, pumps for water supply, pumping of water, domestic hot water supply and distribution, drainage, waste and vent system, storm water handling, firefighting and sustainable practices in plumbing.
At the completion of this course, the students should be confident and competent to be able to do the following:
C0*1:Make estimates in water consumption and water demands for different building types in order to determine the capacities and sizes of storage tanks, septic tank, pipes and pumps for both supply and drainage.
C02:Plan and design a workable drainage waste and vent system, including the necessary storage, treatment and disposal facilities in a residential building.
CO3:Plan and design a good water distribution system for a residential house.
C04: Plan and design an effective storm water handling system.
CO5: Understand and apply the implementing rules and regulations of the National Plumbing Code and commit to professional ethics, responsibilities and norms of plumbing practice.
CO6: Demonstrate understanding of the societal, health issues and consequent responsibilities relevant to plumbing practice.
*CO – Course Outcome
As evidence of having attained the course outcomes, students have to accomplish the following:
Output 1:FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF PLUMBING: The students will prepare an individual working folder based on a project design brief and will contain the output in estimating water consumption, water demand and sizing of storage tanks. It will also contain the sizing of rainwater catchment tank and soak pit.
Output 2:FOR THE STUDY OF THE ELEMENTS OF PLUMBING AND PLUMBING FIXTURES AND ACCESSORIES: The students will prepare an individual working folder for a two storey residential house that will contain the detail drawings for the toilet and bath, and kitchen. This will also include the schedule of plumbing fixtures, fittings and accessories.
Output 3: FOR THE PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES OF BUILDING SANITARY DRAINAGE SYSTEM: The students will prepare an individual working folder for a two storey residential house that will contain the designs of its drainage, waste and vent piping. This will include the plumbing analysis and calculations.
Output 4:FOR THE PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF BUILDING STORM WATER DRAINAGE: The students will prepare an individual working folder for a two storey residential house that will contain the designs of its system in handling rainwater runoff.
Output 5: FOR THE PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF BUILDING WATER SUPPLY AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM:
The students will prepare an individual working folder for a two storey residential house that will contain the designs of its water supply and distribution system. This will include the plumbing analysis and calculations.
Output 6: Generally, throughout the course, the student will undergo problem solving activities via seatwork or homework, long quizzes during pre-midterm and pre-final. Midterm and Final examinations will also be given.
The grading of an accepted output is based on the completeness of the required contents. Every deficiency found will equal to 0.1 added to a starting grade of 1.
Rubric based ratings will be used for some outputs. Late output = a grade of 4.0
The quality of exercises will be rated using rubrics that distinguished five different levels of attainment.
Very Well done
Contains all the required items called for in the design brief. Very well coordinated.
Contains most of the required items called for in the design brief. Well-coordinated.
Contains half of the required items called for in the design brief. Not well coordinated.
Contains less than half of the required items called for in the design brief. Coordination is a problem.
Failure to submit
Conformity to all relevant requirements.
Conformity to most of the relevant requirements.
Conformity to some of the relevant requirements.
Conformity to very few of the relevant requirements.
Failure to conform.
The design process is clearly outlined incorporating all the principles and practices outlined for the output.
The design process is clearly outlined but incorporating only some of the principles and practices outlined for the output
The outline of the design process takes time to understand because the principles and practices outlined for the output are not clearly seen.
The design process is hard to comprehend because the principles and practices outlined for the output are not clearly represented.
The design process is incomprehensible because the principles and practices outlined for the output are taken for granted.
Failure to go with the flow.
Exceptional presentation in set up and layout. Excellent application of skills in graphics and lettering.
Very good presentation set up and layout. Above average application of skills in graphics and lettering.
Satisfactory presentation set up and layout. Average application of skills in graphics and lettering.
Unsatisfactory presentation set up and layout. Below average application of skills in graphics and lettering.
Work is done haphazardly making the presentation confusing. Very evident that the work is devoid of love.
Failure to adapt.
The variables are clearly identified and defined resulting in a well-organized solution.
Only several variables are clearly identified and defined resulting in a solution that is above average.
Some variables are not clearly identified and defined resulting in an average solution.
Majority of variables are not clearly identified and defined making the solution suspicious. Unsatisfactory work.
Shows the solution but not the process of arriving at the solution.
Failure to understand.
Attendance, Tardiness and Class Sessions
There are approximately 30 class sessions. The maximum allowable number of absences is six (6) absences or an equivalent of 20% of the total class sessions. If a student incurs three (3) straight absences, he/she is required to get a re-admission slip signed by the Architecture Department Chair before he/she is allowed back to the class. An excuse letter with a medical certificate is required for those who incur absences in class and during exams. The instructor has the option to mark a student absent if he/she is not working on the designated activity in the classroom. Late submission of plates and other requirements would mean a grade of 4.0 for the student in that activity.
Students are expected to approach and consult the facilitator on matters pertaining to the project or assignment given. . The instructor will occasionally check on their progress, comment on their works and answer project-related queries from students.
Project plates may be presented during class sessions. Announcements with regards to submittals, deadlines, examinations and other requirements are made by the instructor inside the classroom.
The midterm and final examinations will be objective type to gauge the level of comprehension of the students on the theoretical aspect of the course.
