Civil Engineering Toolbox: Software untuk Engineer Sipil

December 14, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Perkenalkan software buatanku: Civil Engineering Toolbox.

civil-engineering-toolbox is collection of small programs of civil engineering that I built to help me to solve small to medium and common problems when designing something. When I try to create programs for practical use, sometimes I will add programs that is pure-theory (mathematics) when I’m interested on it.

It is web based application that can be opened in your own browser (offline) or can be accessed from other computer if you are connected to LAN (Local Area Network). This software can be used as a problem-solver, reminder (through the shown formula), or just to give quick estimation.

Proyek software ini mulai saya kerjakan sekitar akhir bulan Juli 2014. Sesuai dengan deskripsinya, aplikasi ini saya buat untuk membantu saya menyelesaikan desain skala kecil hingga besar. Beberapa aplikasi sudah bisa dipakai dengan fitur yang menurut saya sudah cukup. Karena kesibukan pekerjaan, akhir-akhir ini tidak banyak aplikasi yang bisa saya kembangkan.

Software ini saya buat dengan menggunakan bahasa Python dan banyak pustaka luar sehingga proses instalasinya terlihat sangat kompleks. Keuntungannya adalah saya bisa fokus hanya pada aplikasi sipilnya saja, sedangkan fungsi lainnya seperti fungsi numerik, web, pembuatan grafik, template, dan fungsi lain menggunakan pustaka yang sudah saya anggap stabil.

Meskipun baru ada beberapa aplikasi, harapan saya adalah aplikasi ini bisa semakin lengkap dan bisa digunakan oleh engineer sipil dalam menyelesaikan masalahnya. Kamu bisa mengunduh software ini, menggunakannya dengan bebas (gratis) dan menyebarluaskannya sesuai dengan lisensi BSD-3 clause.

Punya ide aplikasi atau kritik? Boleh disampaikan di blog ini atau di web Github tersebut di atas (harus registrasi terlebih dahulu) 😀

Tambahan Tekanan Lateral Tanah Aktual

December 14, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Kalo kamu adalah mahasiswa atau engineer sipil, tentu di mata kuliah geoteknik kamu pernah dengar dengan penambahan beban lateral akibat adanya tambahan beban vertikal pada tanah. Contoh paling umum adalah kasus dinding penahan tanah. Selain didesain untuk menahan tekanan lateral akibat tanah, dinding juga harus didesain untuk menahan beban tambahan akibat jalan, kendaraan, orang, atau perumahan yang berada di atas tanah tersebut.

Persamaan Boussinesq tentang beban tambahan diturunkan dengan menggunakan analisis elastis, material tanah yang homogen, dan dianalisis untuk material di ruang yang tidak berbatas. Namun teori ini tidak menggunakan parameter tanah seperti tahanan geser, modulus elastisitas, atau friksi antara dinding dan tanah. Untuk penyederhanaan, banyak teori mengasumsikan koefisien Poisson’s ratio  untuk tanah diambil sebesar 0,5.

Eksperimen yang dilakukan oleh Spangler (1936) menghasilkan data tambahan lateral 2 kali lebih besar dibandingkan teori Boussinesq. Teng (1962) juga menyatakan bahwa analisis plastis akan menghasilkan tambahan 2 kali lebih besar dibandingkan analisis elastis. Teng menggunakan penyederhanaan rumus Boussinesq oleh Terzaghi yang dituangkan dalam bukunya Foundation Design dan manual software Civiltech.

Di bawah ini adalah persamaan Terzaghi (analisis elastis) untuk tambahan beban lateral akibat beban titik.

Beban titik pada dinding penahan tanah

Beban titik pada dinding penahan tanah

\displaystyle m <= 0.4 ; P_1 = \frac{0.28Q}{H^2}\frac{n^2}{(0.16+n^2)^3}
\displaystyle m > 0.4 ; P_1 = \frac{1.77Q}{H^2}\frac{m^2n^2}{(m^2+n^2)^3}

Lalu kapan persamaan dengan analisis elastis dan plastis digunakan? Banyak engineer menyarankan bahwa persamaan elastis digunakan untuk dinding penahan tanah yang sifatnya lentur (fleksibel). Sedangkan untuk dinding yang kaku (rigid) atau berdeformasi sangat kecil, tambahan beban lateral harus dikali dengan 2. Contoh dinding yang fleksibel adalah dinding yang terbuat dari pelat tipis yang cenderung berdeformasi cukup besar. Contoh dinding yang rigid adalah basement (ruang bawah tanah) suatu gedung.

Penjelasan paling sederhana adalah teori elastis dibuat dengan mengasumsikan bawha material tanah bersifat elastis, yang berarti tanah harus berdeformasi ketika diberi beban. Namun, ketika dinding penahan tanah bersifat sangat kaku, dinding mencegah tanah untuk berdeformasi secara bebas yang akhirnya menghasilkan beban tambahan. Efek ini disebut oleh Mindlin (1936) sebagai efek beban mirror.

Beberapa software mungkin belum mempertimbangkan efek beban mirror ini. Oleh karena itu perlu mengecek apakah software yang kita pakai sudah memperhitungkan pengaruh kekakuan dinding. Jika belum, kamu harus mengalikan persamaan-persamaan Terzaghi atau Boussinesq dengan faktor 2.

Pencarian Artikel Teknik Sipil dengan Menggunakan Google Custom Search Engine

January 28, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Saat kita ingin mencari bahan kuliah atau sekedar mencari topik dan artikel yang berhubungan dengan teknik sipil melalui Google, kadang kala kita tidak menginginkan hasil pencarian yang tidak relevan. Banyak produk yang berkaitan dengan teknik sipil ditampilkan bersama dengan hasil pencarian lainnya, dan hanya sedikit saja yang berkaitan erat dengan pencarian tersebut.

Saya mencoba Google Custom Search Engine untuk mengumpulkan website-website yang saya anggap memiliki konten yang baik dan relevan dengan bidang ketekniksipilan. Meskipun belum banyak, tapi saya akan terus menambah jumlah website yang akan tampil di hasil pencarian.

Untuk mengakses halaman google search engine ini silahkan membuka alamat http://goo.gl/kB4y7. URL awal halaman pencarian ternyata sangat panjang sehingga saya harus memendekkan alamatnya agar tidak terlalu memusingkan.
