Employing the finite element method via SCAD software, we assessed the structural integrity and load-bearing capacities of the foundation options. Material consumption was quantified for each variant, and the consistency of settling calculations for the slab foundation was evaluated. The results indicated that the slab foundation not only minimizes material usage but also simplifies design complexity according to normative standards. Based on technical and economic assessments, the slab foundation is recommended as the most cost-effective and structurally efficient option for such construction projects. This research provides a pivotal foundation design perspective that could influence future architectural and engineering practices in residential building construction.</p> <p><strong>Highlights:</strong></p> <ul> <li>SCAD software validates foundation integrity via finite element analysis.</li> <li>Slab foundations offer superior cost and material efficiency.</li> <li>Simplifies design, enhancing construction process efficiency.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong>Structural Integrity, Slab Foundation, Reinforcement, Monolith, Building</p> Saktaganova Nargul, Uderbayev Saken, Zhapakhova Akmaral, Zhakapbayeva Gulnaz, Aben Gulaina, Yespenbetova Alina Copyright (c) 2024 Saktaganova Nargul, Uderbayev Saken, Zhapakhova Akmaral, Zhakapbayeva Gulnaz, Aben Gulaina, Yespenbetova Alina https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://ijins.umsida.ac.id/index.php/ijins/article/view/1067 Tue, 16 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Advancements in Expanded Clay Manufacturing Using "Clay-Desert Sand-Oil Sludge" Sludge Composite Materials https://ijins.umsida.ac.id/index.php/ijins/article/view/1068 <p>This study explores the development of resource-saving expanded clay technology utilizing underutilized clay raw materials and oil extraction waste.

Through meticulous research, it was discerned that the predominant issue plaguing the production process was the occurrence of stoppages due to irregular or unstable dimensions in the output, particularly concerning the Item Bush K0JA Left. Employing methodologies such as SIPOC analysis and the 4M framework revealed that the root cause primarily stemmed from machine-related factors, exacerbated by fluctuations in the installation, resulting in misalignments and subsequent dimension inaccuracies. Addressing this, a targeted intervention involving the addition of locking bolts to the material fixture mitigated the stoppage occurrences significantly, with the operator rectifying positioning irregularities on average 1200 minutes per month. This intervention not only enhanced operational efficiency but also yielded tangible cost savings, amounting to Rp 578,000 monthly or Rp 6,936,000 annually, attributed to the prevention of production downtime. The implications of this study underscore the importance of proactive measures in streamlining manufacturing processes, thereby optimizing resource utilization and economic viability.
