I’m working on a civil engineering report and need support to help me learn.
I did the spreadsheet and the calculation. I just need help with the writing part
introduction (10 points)The introduction should be a paragraph that contains the goals of the lab and an overview of what the reader can expect to find within the report. State the objective of the lab exercise. Though this is provided in the lab documents, the purpose should be restated in your own words. Provide a brief overview or “roadmap” of the report contents.
Results (30 points)This is the only section in which results should be introduced, present your final results from the analysis(tables). Start this section with a brief description of what your data shows. Give your reader a context in which to view the data. Present only your information (raw data, tables from excel sheet, graphs…etc.)
Discussion (40 points)You should explain your results and their ramifications by answering the questions provided in the procedures (usually it is 3 to 5 questions). You can include details of the principles, relationships, generalizations, and consequences of your experiment. You must demonstrate that you understand your investigation and corresponding results. Be sure to relate your interpretation and discussion back to your objectives. Do your data answer your original question? You should also include a discussion of possible errors and exceptions. If relevant or available, discuss how your results compare pertinent standards.
Conclusion (5 points)Summarize the major points of your memo. A good conclusion is usually quite short. A few sentences should be sufficient. Restate your numerical results, but do not editorialize about your results.
