  • Effect of Cement Stabilization on Shear Strength Parameters of Soft Soils
           on Agricultural Road

    • Authors: Aldington Jian Cheng Liu, Zaihasra Abu Talib, Jia Yian Bong, Felix N. L. Ling, Gambo Haruna Yunusa
      Pages: 15 - 24
      Abstract: Agricultural roads play a crucial role in facilitating transportation in agricultural regions, including horticulture, smallholder farms and plantations. However, the agricultural roads in Sungai Balang, Muar face challenges due to the poor condition of the soft soil. Soft soil is characterized by low shear strength, high compressibility and large settlements, making it unsuitable for efficient road infrastructure. To address these issues, cement stabilization has been proposed in this study as a potential solution to improve the soft soil on agricultural roads in the paddy field area of Sungai Balang. The objectives of this study are to identify the classification of the soft soil on agricultural roads in Sungai Balang through grain size analysis, moisture content test, specific gravity test, Atterberg limit test and standard proctor compaction test and to determine the effectiveness of cement stabilization through direct shear test. The direct shear test was carried out to evaluate the shear strength parameters of the soil on the agricultural roads before and after the addition of different percentages of cement (5%, 10% and 15% by dry weight of the soft soil). The results of soil classification showed that the soft soil on agricultural roads in Sungai Balang was classified as MH, which was silty soil with high plasticity. Besides, the results of direct shear test indicated that the 15% cement specimen achieved the optimum percentages compared to the others. The friction angle of the 15% cement specimen had increased from 28o to 43o and the cohesion had increased from 28.33 kPa to 85.00 kPa compared to the untreated soil samples. By studying the effects of different percentages of cement on soil settlements, the research provides insights into the performance and suitability of cement stabilization in enhancing the stability and strength of soft soils on agricultural roads.

             Model

      • Authors: Nurul Nabila Sulaiman, Abdul Jalil Omar, Faizal Pakir , Marlina Mohamad
        Pages: 25 - 40
        Abstract: Implementation of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in company strategy has become critical as it increases investors confident in the company. A company without ESG strategies will have problem on loss of intellectual capital, loss of customers, sales and decline in reputation. Failed to disclose ESG information perceived as having poor investments in high-risk sectors. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to evaluate current ESG practices disclosed in annual reports and sustainability statements among 55 construction sector companies listed in Bursa Malaysia from 2021 until 2022. The investigation was conducted using content analysis based on ESG pillars and themes of FTSE Russell rating model. The rating model consists of 3 individual pillars and 14 themes. A binary scoring method was used, and the result was analyses in descriptive analysis. Based on the content analysis, the results indicate that social pillar has the highest percentage of ESG practice among the construction company with 64% score with the focus on health & safety. Environmental pillar practice remains the second highest score with 57.45% followed by governance with 55% score. The findings of this study are useful to investors, government agencies such as Bursa Malaysia and Securities Commission, industry, policy makers, and other related agencies. This study is among the first content analysis study on auditing ESG practices of construction sector in Malaysian public listed companies guided by FTSE Russell rating model.
        Keywords: Articles ; Defining the Existence of Housing Submarkets for Terraced Properties in
               Johor Bahru

        • Authors: Wendy Lim Wen Xin, Burhaida Burhan, Mohd Lizam Mohd Diah
          Pages: 41 - 47
          Abstract: Recent research on housing submarkets over the decades and the necessity to categorise heterogeneous property markets into distinct submarkets are deemed essential in the real estate field. Housing submarkets operate based on the concept of a group of dwellings that are substantially close substitutes to one another, but are relatively poor substitutes for dwellings in different submarkets. This mechanism primarily depends on spatial variations in housing characteristics related to structure, location, and neighbourhood. Housing submarkets are vital in enhancing the precision of housing pricing and analysing the dynamic shifts in the property markets. This study aimed to define and examine the presence of housing submarkets for the terraced properties in Johor Bahru with the Malaysian Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH) housing transaction database. The database documented 63,036 housing transactions between 2009 and 2018 with thirteen independent structural and locational housing attributes. The study also recommended an objective data-driven methodology by integrating principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis to delineate housing submarkets. Resultantly, the presence of housing submarkets was identified within the property market with the delineation of two specific submarket effects, namely the housing location cluster and housing quality cluster. The submarkets provided a comprehensive framework for segregating property traits into prospective clusters. Establishing housing submarkets may provide valuable insights, implicit cluster details, and a more reliable hedonic price model prediction. The outcomes could be employed by property valuers, analysts, and urban planners for a sound comprehension of current real estate circumstances.

              • Authors: Hamad Al Katheeri, Norliah Kudus
                Pages: 88 - 99
                Abstract: In the UAE's ongoing digital transformation, particularly in the service sector like the Judicial Department, there's a significant gap in understanding the basics of digital innovation, especially in developing countries. Recognizing digital innovation as crucial for government organizations to strengthen their competitive edge by speeding up citizen service, the insufficient exploration of the relationship between knowledge management, digital innovation, and service performance emphasizes the need to bridge this gap for greater efficiency and effectiveness. Hence, this paper reveals a study to establish a mediation model where innovation acts as mediator to the relationship knowledge management processes and digital service performance of the judicial system in UAE. To develop the model, the study adopted quantitative approach where data was collected through questionnaire survey amongst the department’s employees.  The questionnaire was randomly distributed to the selected 332 employees of the department. The collected data was used to develop and assessed the model in SmartPLS software. It was found that the model has achieved all fitness evaluation criteria with GoF value of 0.766 which indicates the model attain large predictive capability. Hypothesis testing found that for direct relationship between knowledge management processes and digital service performance, the relationship is significant having path strength of 0.504. For indirect relationship between knowledge management processes; innovation and digital service performance, it was found that the relationship is significant having a strength of 0.270. Finally, it was found that the innovation is partially mediates the relationship between management construct and digital service performance. The developed model can be applicable in enhancing innovation to improve the relationship of knowledge management process and digital service performance in UAE Judicial System.
                Keywords: Articles ; Analysis of Moderating Effect of Turnover Intention on the Relationship of
                       Intrinsic Motivation and Employee Performance

                • Authors: Amna Rashid Salim Alsouri Al Ali, Shahrul Nizam Salahudin
                  Pages: 100 - 111
                  Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the moderating effect of turnover intention on the relationship between intrinsic motivation and the employee performance model. The moderation effect analysis was conducted using SmartPLS software version 3.0. The model was constructed within the software, and the analysis was conducted in two stages. The first stage involved a bootstrapping process to generate and determine the significance level and strength of the path. The second stage employed the PLS Algorithm process, generating a simple slope graph. Results from the bootstrapping process revealed a noticeable moderating effect attributed to turnover intention, supported by a t-statistics value of 2.514 and a statistically significant p-value of 0.006. Investigating the specifics of the path coefficient, the moderating impact on the relationship was quantified at -0.097, indicating a negative moderating influence. In practical terms, this suggests that turnover intention exerts a dampening effect on the connection between motivation and employee job performance. Regarding the simple slope analysis, it was found that the moderation effect of turnover intention on the relationship between intrinsic motivation and employee performance is particularly robust when turnover intention is lower. However, this effect diminishes to some extent when turnover intention is higher. These findings provide valuable insights into how the dynamics of these variables interact under varying levels of turnover intention.

                  • Authors: Khuloud Humaid Saeed Mohammed Alshamsi, Ahmad Nur Aizat Ahmad
                    Pages: 112 - 126
                    Abstract: This study was aimed to develop a framework for adopting International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and gauging its influence on Organizational Performance. The developed framework reveals that Organizational factors strongly align with Financial Reporting & Transparency and Economic & Industry Impact & Global Market Presence but not with Decision-Making & Governance. however, the accounting capabilities factors are predominantly linked to industry impact & global market presence, while top management support factors robustly connect with both industry impact & global market presence and subsequently, decision-making & governance. Conversely, readiness factors exhibit a compelling relationship across financial reporting & transparency, industry impact & global market presence, and decision-making & governance, highlighting their significant impact on organizational performance. This framework can be applicable in organizational contexts, providing guidance for strategic decision-making and performance enhancement in the adoption of IFRS. Leveraging the identified correlations, organizations can focus on strengthening specific factors, including Organizational Readiness, accounting capabilities, Top management support, and Readiness, to enhance financial reporting, transparency, industry impact, global market presence, and decision-making processes. Implementing targeted strategies based on these relationships may contribute to overall organizational success and sustainable growth.

                      Abstract: Unpredictable weather, global warming, and even air pollution result from human activities that harm the ecosystem, whether we like it or not. Since the publication of the Brundtland Report, the adverse effects on the environment have been the focus of discussion by many parties. The Brundtland report highlighted that the current physical development practices have less emphasis on environmental protection while planning physical growth. Since then, the construction sector has gradually embraced many green practices, such as green procurement. The people capability requirements that are crucial for speeding the adoption of green-oriented procurement will, therefore, be highlighted in this paper. This study uses an exploratory technique to uncover the people's capability criteria for green procurement of a construction project. The identification of the criteria is novel Several focus group discussion sessions were conducted involving stakeholders from various backgrounds who have been involved with green buildings. The results of this study will help the project stakeholders to enhance people capability plans for the project development. The ultimate aim is to ensure all the green project objectives are carried out in line with the urgent need to protect the environment and support government policies.

                        Pages: 161 - 174
                        Abstract: This study aimed to develop a multi-linear regression model to explore the impact of innovation factors on the organizational performance of ADNOC. It employed a quantitative research approach in collecting and analysing the numerical data statistically. Correlation results found that there are significant positive relationships between all constructs, indicating that as one variable increases, the other tends to increase as well in the interconnections among marketing, management, process, organization structure, and organizational performance within the studied context.  While, for the multi-linear regression model, it was found that the correlation coefficient of 0.503 between the predictors and the dependent variable, indicating a strong relationship. Furthermore, with the coefficient of determination, it suggests that 50.3% of the selected independent variables collectively explain the variance in the dependent variable. This equation model can be directly applied to ADNOC's organizational performance by inputting the values of the innovation factors/variables into the equation. The established equation holds potential benefits for organizations aiming to enhance performance through the application of innovative strategies.

                          Abstract: Building information modelling (BIM) has been theoretically proven to enhance the integration of design, construction, and operation processes, hence improving the holistic delivery of a construction project. Despite the many initiatives provided by the government across various countries to increase the uptake of BIM in project implementation, previous studies have discovered the many barriers to successfully applying BIM, among which are legal and contractual issues. Hence, the present study explores and reviews the current legal and contractual impediments that have restricted BIM-based applications in the construction industry. Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) were employed as a standard protocol for reviewing the current research in the existing literature. The overall search process resulted in a total of 44 articles, which were then thematically analysed to disclose the findings. The review derived eight key aspects, namely procurement method, contract documentation, time and cost, quality, coordination, liability, security and law and regulation and their respective subcomponents as the basis of legal and contractual impediments that could challenge the success of BIM application in construction projects. The study extends the existing knowledge of BIM application and the implications arising from its utilisation and offers some practical insights for design and construction practitioners to improve their roles, obligations, and compliance with BIM contractual requirements. Several recommendations are also made for future research on BIM functionalities for contract administration.

                            Abstract: This paper details a study focused on establishing a framework to examine how Artificial Intelligence Usage mediates the relationship between innovation factors and organizational performance. Before constructing the framework, a Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) mediation model was formulated using SmartPLS software. This model encompasses innovation factors categorized into three groups: marketing, management, and process, treated as independent constructs, while organizational performance serves as the dependent construct, with artificial intelligence usage acting as the mediator. Data for constructing the model were gathered through a questionnaire survey administered to 129 employees of ADNOC, selected via convenient random sampling. The constructed model underwent rigorous assessment of its inner and outer components until meeting predefined fitness criteria. Subsequently, a bootstrapping procedure was employed for hypothesis testing to ascertain the significance level of each relationship path, facilitating the determination of mediation effects. The framework emerged from the results of these mediation effects, indicating that process innovation achieved partial mediation, management innovation achieved full mediation, while marketing innovation showed no mediation effect. This framework is poised to aid ADNOC employees in integrating innovation factors with artificial intelligence usage to enhance organizational performance.

                              Abstract: The pandemic outbreak has emphasized the necessity of incorporating pandemic marine risk assessment as a critical component of marine spatial planning (MSP). The purpose of this study was to utilize the Risk Assessment Matrix (RAM) methodology to determine the most severely impacted zone at Northport, Port Klang. 31 senior management personnel at Northport, Port Klang were involved in a survey to assess the pandemic's severity in various zones. According to the findings, the Vehicle's Terminal zone had the highest score of 17.72, indicating it to be the most severely impacted zone, followed by the Passenger's Terminal zone (15.88), Distribution Centre zone (14.62), Bulk zone (14.52), Dangerous Good zone (14.13), Free Zone (14.10), Ancillary Service zone (13.65), and Container zone (13.39). These results can be integrated into Geographical Information System (GIS) and Multi Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) to convert them from numerical values to spatial data, and visualize them hierarchically. Additionally, this study's findings can contribute to enhancing MSP practices, not only at Northport, Port Klang, but also at other ports facing similar challenges. By including pandemic risk assessment as a crucial part of MSP, ports can develop effective pandemic response plans that prioritize the health and safety of port workers and visitors, as well as ensure the continuity of trade and economic activities.

                                Abstract: Structural strengthening is essential in civil engineering to ensure the integrity, safety, and longevity of various types of structures. Effective strengthening is required to solve these issues and lengthen the service life of structures as they naturally deteriorate with time. Hence, the use of various strengthening techniques to enhance the structural integrity of existing structures and infrastructure has gained prominence in recent years. This study demonstrates how Reinforced Concrete (RC) structures may benefit from Near-Surface Mounted (NSM) technology. The demonstration involves the experimental study on the performance of three different types of RC beams; unstrengthened RC beam, RC beam strengthened with NSM procedure using a conventional steel ribbed bar, and RC beam strengthened with NSM procedure using an iron-based smart memory alloy (Fe-SMA) ribbed bar. Consequently, three RC beams were evaluated at room temperature throughout the experimental testing, while the remaining three RC beams were examined after being exposed to a 200' temperature exposure. The experimental findings suggested that the performance of RC beams strengthened using NSM techniques was superior to that of RC beams that had not been strengthened. Although the results generally indicated a decrease in ultimate load obtained in the RC beams exposed to elevated temperature compared to RC beams tested at room temperature. However, the RC beams strengthened with an iron-based smart memory alloy ribbed bar recorded an increase in load-carrying capacity. These results demonstrate the substantial variations in load-bearing capacities among the beams and emphasise the efficiency of the strengthening application for RC beams in the constructions industry, particularly the use of iron-based smart memory alloy ribbed bars as strengthening materials

                                  Abstract: FRP strengthening using near surface mounted (NSM) is recognized as a highly effective method for strengthening structures using FRP material. However, there are some drawbacks associated with this technique. One of the challenges is concrete cover separation failure, which leads to premature material failure and restricts NSM technique applicability. To address this issue, multinomial logistic regression (MLR) analysis is used. This analysis aimed to investigate the factors (total equivalent steel ratio, stirrup steel ratio, and presence of an anchorage) that can be used to predict the failure modes of reinforced concrete beams strengthened with the FRP-NSM system using a previously published dataset consisting of 99 beam tests from 19 studies. By using odds ratios, which are exponential coefficients, the MLR results were interpreted. The study showed that low TESR and stirrup steel ratio were the major factors leading to flexural failure, FRP bar debonding, and FRP bar rupture compared to concrete cover separation. Moreover, the reinforced concrete beams strengthened with the FRP-NSM system without anchorage had a positive effect on the failure modes, especially with flexural failure and FRP bar debonding compared to concrete cover separation. Based on the classification table analysis, the model’s correct classification rate was 56.6%. The model is accurate in predicting failure modes, as its rate is higher than the chance accuracy rate of 33.7%.

                                    Abstract: This paper comprehensively investigates the dynamic viscoelastic behavior of shape memory polymer composites (SMPCs) reinforced with different weight percentages of kenaf fiber (KF) ranging from 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 30% and 40%. The dynamic mechanical behavior of these composites was characterized using dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) over a range of temperatures. The objective was to determine the optimal fiber content of KF as reinforcement in SMPCs, specifically on viscoelastic response, storage modulus, loss modulus, damping and glass transition behaviour. The results revealed a clear correlation between the KF contents and the dynamic mechanical properties of SMPCs. The storage modulus significantly improves at higher KF content, particularly at elevated temperatures. Additionally, a quantitative assessment of coefficient C demonstrates strong interfacial bonding between fibers and the matrix in samples 30KF and 40KF. These samples also exhibit higher loss modulus and lower tan delta values, providing evidence for the efficacy of KF in enhancing composite properties. Moreover, higher KF contents induce a shift in the glass transition temperature, signifying enhanced in fiber-matrix interaction and thermal stability. The Cole-cole further demonstrates that at higher KF content, the sample surpasses Neat SMPU, presenting compelling evidence of improved matrix-fiber bonding. Statistical analysis through one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) substantiates the statistical significance of the dynamic mechanical properties across the different weight percentages of KF-SMPCs. Based on these findings, 30KF is the optimal fiber content, balancing mechanical enhancement and feasible fabrication. This decision is grounded in challenges encountered at 40KF, where ensuring composite homogeneity becomes complex. This study contributes to the growing body of knowledge on utilization of natural fibers in development of advanced polymer composites while maintaining eco-sustainability.

                                           Effluent

                                      Abstract: Increasing population growth with high socio-economic development has changed the world landscape. Due to that, these advancements have resulted in significant challenges, such as water quality degradation and inadequate management of solid waste. Moreover, the overall environmental impacts have threatened water security and caused global warming. In addressing these critical issues, a robust water treatment technology is required. Using activated carbon (AC) to enhance wastewater effluent quality has proven to be a promising and sustainable solution, particularly in developing countries like Malaysia. AC from sugarcane bagasse (SCB), empty fruit bunch (EFB), and rice husk (RH) have been identified as abundant bioresources in Malaysia. These materials possess unique compositions and potential for reuse. The production of AC involves both physical activation through a carbonization process at 600°C and chemical activation through impregnation with ZnCl2. In the study, samples from wastewater effluent were collected and analyzed for several parameters, including total suspended solids (TSS), chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), ammonia-nitrogen, nitrite-nitrogen, and nitrate-nitrogen. The samples have undergone treatment using activated carbon with various ratios. Here, the removal efficiency of pollutants was determined before and after the batch experiment. It can be denoted that AC, composed of SCB:EFB:RH in a ratio of 1.5:1:1, demonstrated an outstanding performance with an average percentage removal of 97%. Later, a detailed analysis of the physicochemical characteristics of the AC was conducted. The output revealed significant surface modifications and alterations in the functional groups of the AC due to the adsorption process. These findings set a remarkable implication for tertiary treatment in enhancing the quality of effluent. This innovation provides valuable insight into implementing sustainable practices in wastewater treatment operations. Thus, this project holds immense potential by offering cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and adaptation of green technology for long-term solutions.

                                               Operational Modal Analysis and Finite Element Model

                                          Abstract: The integration of Operational Modal Analysis (OMA) and Finite Element Model (FEM) techniques has proven to be a valuable approach for evaluating and maintaining the health of such structures. OMA extracts dynamic characteristics from a bridge's responses to ambient vibrations, while FEM employs computational models to simulate and compare these dynamic behaviours. This comprehensive methodology ensures an accurate representation of the bridge's behaviour and its correlation with real-world conditions. However, a significant challenge arises in assessing the Ultra High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) pedestrian bridge in Klang, Selangor, launched in October 2022, due to limited available information about OMA and FEM on UHPFRC. This research aims to develop FEM and conduct ambient vibration tests to obtain modal parameters. Moreover, the study investigates OMA techniques in the context of weak excitation sources, filling a critical knowledge gap. By comparing experimental results with FEM, this research provides insights into the feasibility and reliability of OMA under challenging environmental conditions. The principal results reveal significant percentage differences in natural frequencies between FEM and OMA, with the most notable disparities occurring in the first mode. Nevertheless, the mode shapes extracted from OMA closely resemble those from FEM. In conclusion, this research enhances the understanding of UHPFRC pedestrian bridge behaviour and modal analysis techniques.
