All homework solutions must be neatly and clearly presented as hand-written
calculations or as a computer printout. Problem sets are due at 4:00pm on the
dates shown on the syllabus. Late homeworks will NOT
Homework is to be done in the assigned teams with each team handing in one
homework solution. The team name MUST be written on the upper-right corner of
the front page of the assignment along with the names of the team members
that actively participated in the generation
of the homework solutions. The role of each team member (e.g., Coordinator,
Recorder, Monitor, Checker - see Team Policies page for
details) should be listed to the right of the team members' names. Each
team member much take on each roll at least 3 times.
Each member should outline solutions prior to producing the team solution.
The individual solution outlines need not be handed in but
are meant to insure that each team member has thought about the problems BEFORE
coming together for team meetings..
Please observe the following guidelines (as applicable) when submitting
- Team name and page number (e.g. 4/6) on each page. Neat and readable.
- Sketches and free body diagrams (where appropriate) drawn with a
straightedge or neatly by hand.
- Plots include labeled axes, a title, different line types or symbols to
distinguish between results, where applicable.
- When possible plot non-dimensional results.
- When at all applicable plot your results!
While the final answer may be in equation form most of us visualize the
solution much better when placed in graphical form. Often times a plot
will reveal undetected errors.
- Electronic solutions should be well documented (liberal use of comments).
- Problem number given for each problem.
- Problem must be solved using symbols until the last step when the
numerical values (including units) are substituted for the symbols.
- Final answer clearly marked for each problem, with dimensions and
appropriate number of significant digits.
- Sufficient detail included to indicate significant steps toward final
- Answers checked against engineering common sense.
- Dimensions checked.
- Pages stapled together. If you have to thick a sheaf of papers there
is an industrial strength stapler in the CEE main office to the right of the
copiers when you face the windows. This means folding, paper-clipping,
binder clipping is insufficient.
