  • Spatial Analysis Of Organic Material, CaCO3 and TOC in Coastal Area, Aceh
           Besar Regency

    • Authors: Amri Adnan, Muhammad Irham, Muhammad Rusdi
      First page: 96
      Abstract: Most of the coastal zones of Aceh Besar are areas of accumulation of organic compounds such as C-Organic and CaCO3. Therefore, studying the distribution of organic carbon and carbonates in sediments in coastal areas is necessary. This study aims to analyze the distribution of C-Organic and Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) coupled with pH and Salinity tests spatially on the surface at a depth of 40 - 60 cm in the coastal area of Aceh Besar District. The C-Organic content was analyzed using the Walkley and Black method, while Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) was analyzed using the Titrimetric method. Soil pH and salinity tests were carried out in situ using a pH meter, and soil salinity tests were tested using a salinometer. The study results show that the distribution of C-Organic and Carbonate content differs in each location in Aceh Besar Coastal area. The distribution of organic carbon and carbonates in the northern part of Aceh Besar, in the Ujong Batee Puteh area, has an average value of 0.86% and 10.28%. While the distribution of C-Organic in the Lamreh area is, on average, 0.44%, and carbonate (CaCO3) is 8.03%. On the other hand, in the western part of Aceh Besar, the distribution C-Organic in the Ujong Pancu area is, on average, 2.83%, and carbonate (CaCO3) is 8.05%. The distribution of C-Organic in the Lhok Seudu area has an average value of 1.07% and carbonate (CaCO3) of 9.65%. The results also reveal the fact that there are 3 (three) factors that influence the distribution of C-Organic and CaCO3. These factors are the topographic location that allows the material to be eroded due to runoff, vegetation that enriches organic matter composition, and the depositional environment. The results of the pH distribution test in soil showed that the pH in the coastal area of Aceh Besar is relatively alkaline, and the salinity distribution is relatively low, indicating the absence of seawater intrusion and salt deposits. Further studies need to be carried out for other depth variations to obtain more comprehensive results of other distributions.

  • Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) and Its Prospect for Powering
           Automobile in the Future

    • Authors: Alimatun Nashira, Soniya Nur Asyifa, Riski Sindi Yosida
      First page: 114
      Abstract: Increasing responsibility toward the environment forced the transportation sector to shift its gear toward the electric vehicle. While battery electric vehicle (BEV) have started enjoying success, it poses a question as to whether or not fuel cell vehicle (FCV) becomes redundant even before being widely deployed. The commercialization of FCV usually only comes after a long period after the prototype was introduced, signifying certain barriers to large-scale utilization. Aside from the various LCAs, studies have also tried to estimate the future cost and model FCV adoption. Due to the limited data and different regional conditions in which the project was done, these researches used vastly different scenarios and assumptions, making the result differ significantly. The lack of a clear-cut answer might indicate that the fate of FCV is not yet decided, and the PEMFC might still play a part in the green transportation era, albeit not as the dominant technology. Alternative uses and the condition required to utilize them were discussed in this short review

    • Authors: Raihan Dara Lufika, Hasan Yudie Sastra, Prima Denny Sentia, Ilyas Ilyas, Iskandar Hasanuddin
      First page: 129
      Abstract: Supply Chain Risk Management is an industry collaboration work with partners in the supply chain system to implement a risk management process in dealing with the emergence of risks and uncertainties caused by logistics activities or other resources in the supply chain. Every industry deals with risk. This study aims to identify, classify, and mapping supply chain activities and their risks. At the initial stage, the identification of supply chain events is done by doing interviews and brainstorming. Then, these events are portrayed in the supply chain map. Then, the risk identification stage used a rating scale to determine the level of likelihood and consequence based on three SCOR elements. There are 40 risk events in this study which are 13 risk events in the source section, 19 risk events in the make section, and eight risk events in the delivery section. Finally, it is necessary to calculate the value of the Risk Priority Index (RPI). The RPI is the basis of the risk mapping stage. The risk map will show the urgency to treat each risk event.

  • Tensile Strength of Natural Fiber in Different Type of Matrix

    • Authors: Taufiq Saidi, Muttaqin Hasan, Zahra Amalia
      First page: 137
      Abstract: In recent years, the used of product based with low environmental impact has become one of the considerations in the construction structure. Attention of the researchers towards the development of natural material has been increasing. The use of natural fibers as composite materials for strengthened structure have been studied. However, natural fibers are influenced by the hydrophilic nature and its specific morphology. Thus, research related to the natural fiber composite materials still needs to be explored. This study aims to evaluate the tensile strength of natural fiber composite materials based on the type of fiber, fiber layer used and its type of resin according to ASTM D3039. The results show that type of fiber, fiber layer used and its type of resin in the composite matrix considerably affects its tensile strength performance.

  • Experimental Evaluation of Workability Compressive Strength and
           Freeze-Thaw Durability of Concrete Containing Expanded Clay Aggregates

    • Authors: Sara Bensalem, Mohamed Lyes Kamel KHOUADJIA, Kamel Abdou, Ahmed Abderraouf Belkadi, Oussama Kessal
      First page: 146
      Abstract: The development of the building materials industry in Algeria and worldwide has opened up new commercial opportunities for waste recovery. Using recycled materials and natural resources such as expanded clay aggregates are increasingly seen as a solution for the future to meet the gap between production, consumption and environmental protection. The present study investigates the effect of expanded clay aggregate (ECA) on a concrete slump, porosity, softening coefficient, compressive strength, and Freeze-thaw durability. Tests were conducted according to Russian National State Standard (GOST) 10060-2012 of concrete mixtures with expanded clay aggregate (ECA). A total of 7 mixtures were prepared. One is considered a reference mixture based on limestone aggregates. The other six mixtures were prepared by replacing the limestone aggregates with expanded clay aggregates, using two substitution rates (15%, 30% by weight) and three aggregates sizes (Sand 0/4, Gravel 8/16, and 16/25) while maintaining the same w/b ratio. The results indicate that ECAs can be used for concrete production. Furthermore, concrete containing 30% ECA (0/4) has the best properties and is the most freeze-thaw resistant than the other mixtures with ECA.

  • Behaviour Analysis of Strengthened-RC Beam with Natural Fiber Reinforced
           Polymer (NFRP) based on Abaca Fiber by Using Finite Element Method

    • Authors: Taufiq Saidi, Taufiq Saidi, Muttaqin Hasan, Muttaqin Hasan, Zahra Amalia, Muhammad Iqbal, Muhammad Iqbal
      First page: 156
      Abstract: The use of synthetic Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) as a composite material is an alternative material that has been widely used for strengthening and repairing reinforced concrete structures. However, the high price is one of the obstacles in applying synthetic FRP materials in developing countries such as Indonesia. Utilization of natural fiber as a Natural Fiber Reinforced Polymer (NFRP) composite material is an alternative, especially in shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beams. Because it has good tensile strength and also is environmentally friendly. Technological developments in the field of computing make modelling various aspects easier. One of them is modelling reinforced concrete (RC) beams. ATENA V534 is a software that can be used for finite element-based modelling. Therefore, in this study, the ATENA V534 software was used to evaluate the results of research and testing behaviour of reinforced concrete beams from the previous studies about strengthened beam for shear by using NFRP. Behaviour that is evaluated in the form of load and deflection, the pattern of cracks and failure, and stress and strain of reinforcements. The numerical results obtained in ATENA V534 showed in a good agreement with experimental results.

  • Lead and Cadmium Ions Mitigation in Soil using Calcium Carbide
           Waste-Carbonised Lophira Alata Sawdust Composite (CCW-CLAS) as
           Immobilizing Agent

    • Authors: Okponmwense Moses, Queen Omone Asekhame
      Pages: 167 - 176
      Abstract: Soil contamination with heavy metals is a global environmental matter of interest due to its thinkable dangers to humans, environmental health and ecosystem preceding shortfalls in agricultural produce and dangerous health outcomes as they penetrate the food chain. The aim of this study was to mitigate lead and cadmium ions contaminant in soil using calcium carbide waste-carbonized lophira alata sawdust composite (CCW-CLAS). Contaminated soil samples were collected from Evbareke spare parts market, Benin City, Edo state Nigeria, using a grid sampling method at the depth of 0-20cm with the aid of soil auger. 50% W/W of the powdered calcium carbide waste and lophira alata sawdust was placed in a ceramic crucible and put into muffle furnace and heated at 350oC for 3 hours. The X-ray diffraction analysis for the calcium carbide waste-carbonized lophira alata sawdust composite (CCW-CLAS) revealed that it was made up of predominantly calcite fraction (55.0%), portlandite (25.0%), coesite (7.3%), muscovite (6.7%), dolomite (4.0%) and lime (2.1%) this was supported by FTIR analysis. SEM analysis revealed that calcium carbide waste-carbonized lophira alata sawdust composite (CCW-CLAS) possess a rough surface with pore of varied size and irregular shape. The contaminated soil from the Evbareke spare parts market was heavily polluted with petroleum hydrocarbons, and the soil was highly saline with low C.E.C. The soil texture was loamy-sand. As the amount of CCW-CLAS increased in the soil, the amount of cadmium and lead ions that was releasable in the soil reduced, indicating that CCW-CLAS was effective in immobilizing cadmium and lead ions. The optimum amount of the amender in the contaminated soil to immobilize lead ion was 4% w/w and cadmium ion was 2%.

  • Cocoa Bean Dryer and Cleaner Devise : A Microcontroller Experiment

    • Authors: Mohammad Hafiz Hersyah, Desta Yolanda, Nela Fatma
      Pages: 175 - 181
      Abstract: Cleaning and drying cocoa beans are generally done manually by farmers. The manual cleaning process takes a long time, and the pulp reduction is not optimal. In contrast, drying using sunlight takes a long time when it is done in the rainy season. This causes the cocoa beans to be moldy and have low sale value. In the equipment made by the factory, the two machines are made separately and are hardly affordable by the farmers. Based on these problems, a microcontroller-based cocoa bean dryer (de pulper) was designed with a single container so that both processes could be carried out using just one machine. To elaborate this system, cleaning is carried out on fermented cocoa beans that are pulp shed in a rotating cylinder. In comparison, the drying process is carried out by using a heat source, a soil moisture sensor to detect the moisture content of cocoa beans, a DS18B20 sensor to detect temperatures in the drying container, and a cylindrical container is rotated using an A.C. motor. Based on the experiment results, it takes 10 minutes to clean the cocoa beans from the pulp. The drying process takes 5 hours, 10 minutes, and 5 hours and 40 minutes to dry the cocoa beans to a maximum moisture content of 7%. A rotating drying container can speed up the drying process of cocoa beans compared to drying using sunlight in the rainy season.   The proposed tool in this study can carry out more efficient capacity better than the conventional tool.
