Hi NCARB community!
In order to put my study plan together, I am trying to figure out to what extent all engineering disciplines are covered. Here are some more specific questions that may help me clarify the question. Most of these are for modules 1.2/1.3 Determining the size od MEP and structural components:
Do I need to size air ducts, grills diffusers, etc. or I merely need to determine the overall capacity of the AHU? I am pretty sure that ACH to CFM convection will be covered.
Do I need to actually pick the structural member and perform all checks for bending, momentum, sheer based on the loading?
In the case of reinforced concrete, will candidates be expected to determine the area of reinforcement (sq.in) or just something like the overall configuration of rebars in the beam, for example?
At the connections do I need to actually make the checks for weakened cross-section (where bolts are) or I need to just know the basic concepts?
Usually, engineers perform these complex and time-consuming tasks, but the handbook is written as if these items will be covered by the exam.
Thank you for the clarification!
