  1. 1. WT5912TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION & WORKSHOP PRACTICE 2: MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTIONUnit 0 – Week 1: Construction Studies and Health & Safety<br />Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology<br />Lecturer/Teacher: Mr. Joseph Lyster <br />Academic Year 2011: Spring Semester<br />Technical Support: Mr. Joe Murray & Mr. Richie Hennessy <br />Lecture Notes: www.slideshare.net/WT4603<br />P1004 – 28/01/2011 12-1pm<br />
  2. 2. WT5912<br />Introduction:<br />Students will be introduced to the Construction related syllabi at senior cycle level and develop strategies to teach their concepts and content. Students will draw on their knowledge base from their primary degree and content of this module to formulate a coherent approach to teaching construction based subjects at second level.<br />In addition to the Construction syllabi students will be involved in extensive laboratory work to ensure the competent and effective implementation of wood processing safety and practice in second level technology education settings. This is a core issue regarding the management of the classroom environment for health and safety of all and the nature of work being conducted.<br />Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology<br />

  22. 22. WT5912<br />Construction Studies:<br />Details:<br /><ul><li>Construction Studies (C.S.) was established in 1984 and was first introduced to vocational schools
  23. 23. It is a second level senior cycle subject and a follow on subject from junior certificate Materials Technology Wood (MTW)
  24. 24. It is part of the ‘established leaving certificate’ programme
  25. 25. The subject is optional, meaning students can choose to study it if they wish.
  26. 26. It is offered in most schools but not all.
  27. 27. It offers a broad range of learning involving both theory and practical.
  28. 28. In terms of its assessment, it is offered at both ordinary and higher level
  29. 29. The uptake in C.S. has continued despite the collapse of the Irish Construction sector/Industry.
  30. 30. This can be largely attributed to the learning experience on offer and the respect for teachers of C.S.</li></ul>Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology<br />

  53. 53. WT5912<br />Construction Studies:<br />Current Trends…<br />Current Trends:<br /><ul><li>Though the theoretical areas/principles of the subject remain the same there has been a significant change in the process of building.
  54. 54. This is currently being assessed in the leaving certificate exam, which is set by the State Examinations Commission (SEC).
  55. 55. The subject has engendered a strong theme for economic, social and environmental building performance, i.e. sustainability.
  56. 56. These features are being integrated into the examination phase through elements such as updated building regulations, building energy rating (BER), passive housing, sustainable planning and development.
  57. 57. A few years ago the subject was to receive a formal update including a revised syllabus and new name –Architectural Technology.
  58. 58. However, the current economic climate and the issue of funds to support the broader range of development in the technologies has resulted in this plan being shelved until a future date.</li></ul>Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology<br />

  267. 267. Twist
  268. 268. Knots
  269. 269. Loose grain
  270. 270. Example - if material is bowed, set the bowed face to the surface planer table surface and process. Material should never be run through hump side down.</li></ul>Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology<br />

  272. 272. Select appropriate face side and face edge based on inspection
  273. 273. Preliminary surface marking using an ‘X’ with no less than a HB pencil
  274. 274. Ensure extraction gate valve is open and extraction is on
  275. 275. Proceed to plane material – face side and face edge only!</li></ul>Gate Valve locate on extractor pipe just above surface planer<br />X<br />X<br />Department of Design & Manufacturing Technology<br />
