Synopsis
Code of practice for seismic design in Malaysia has been well developed for mandatory compliance by professional
engineers. However, manual seismic design is slow and requires expertise knowledge. Theory and concept of
seismic engineering for building structures has been much researched and developed for computer programming.
ESTEEM as a pioneer in 1994 for the integrated total solution of reinforced concrete building design has
borne fruits of software development on Seismic Modal Response Spectrum Analysis, Design and Detailing.
This seminar will be on the preview of ESTEEM 10 (seismic dynamic) and feature highlights of ESTEEM 9.5. The preview
ESTEEM 10 features will be mainly on modal analysis and response spectrum with regards to the requirements of
EC8 Malaysia Annex. Benchmarking of the modal response spectrum analysis will be presented.

Dato Sri Ir. Hj. Zulkeli Hassan, the Director General

I
t is indeed ironical that while some parts of Malaysia experience
flooding, other areas are hit, at the same time, by drought that
forces the imposition of water rationing.
Addressing this issue has become a priority for the Department

government department that manages and regulates the countrys

water resources. On a bigger scale, JPS is moving towards achieving
water security and sustainability. According to its Director General, Dato
Sri Ir. Hj. Zulkefli Hassan, ensuring water security will contribute towards
national security.
In this exclusive interview, he shares with JURUTERA the means to
achieve water security and sustainability, as well as the importance
JURUTERA MARCH 2017

of having the various states adopt the new Water Resources Act
proposed by JPS and the establishment of a new national entity
in a bold move to integrate and fortify the management of the
countrys water resources.
This move is guided by the Governments 2050 National
Transformation (TN50) roadmap for Malaysia to become a
top 20 country in the world by 2050, with clear-cut economic,
social, cultural and environmental targets which it aims to
achieve by 2050.
COVER STORY
Q. In December 2014, the east coast states
of Kelantan, Terengganu and Pahang were
hit by extraordinary loods, resulting in the
evacuation of some 400,000 people. What
were the main causes of the lood?

Dato Sri Ir. Hj. Zulkeli: The floods in 2014 have been
recorded as the worst flood disaster in the country. Several
states, especially Kelantan, Pahang and Terengganu, were
seriously affected. This was caused mainly by the north-east
monsoon which brought big amounts of rain for days. The
water saturated the ground and took time to recede. The
rain fell for more than 10 days over wide areas of Kelantan,
Terengganu and Pahang, especially at the cornerstone of
the three states above Gunung Gagau, which recorded
over 1,000mm of rain during this period.
Part of Kampung Laut jetty in Kelantan collapsed when lood hit the
More than 400,000 victims were displaced. The floods state in 2014
cost the nation over RM2 billion in infrastructure damages
and billions more in property damages, compensation and
productivity losses.
Another reason was the effect of tidal seawater.
Flooding occurred when high tide and heavy rainfall
happened at the same time. As a result, it took the
drainage systems, whether natural rivers or drainage
trenches, a long time to drain the water into the sea.
There were also several other factors which contributed
to the floods. Debris and rubbish in the drainage systems
blocked the runoff flow and, as a result, the level of water
in the drainage systems rose and flooded the surrounding
areas. The existing drainage system was also unable to
accommodate the increase in runoff due to heavy rainfall JPS uses Selehong Watergate to control water low during loods

acronym for Manual Saliran Mesra Alam (Urban Stormwater Management Manual for
Malaysia), 2000 and 2011, published by the Department of Irrigation & Drainage or Jabatan
Pengairan & Saliran (JPS).

INTRODUCTION 1.1 Permissible Site Discharge (PSD)

1.2 Site Storage Requirement (SSR)
The SSR is the total amount of storage required to ensure that the required
PSD is not exceeded and that the OSD facility does not overlow during the
storage design storm ARI. The storage design storm for estimating the SSR is 10
-year ARI.
The Site Storage Requirement (SSR) for the site in m3 is calculated using
the formula:

The factors c and d are different for above-ground and below-ground


storages due to differences in storage geometry and outlow characteristics.
For above-ground storage:

For below-ground storage:

where
td = selected storm duration (min).
Qd = the peak post-development low from the site for a storm duration equal
to td (l/s).

2. OSD Sizing in MSMA (2011)


The steps involved in OSD design in MSMA (2011) are as follows:
1. Select the region from Figure 5.A1 (MSMA, 2011) which divides the
peninsula into 5 design regions.
2. Determine project area, terrain steepness, and percentage imperviousness.
3. Determine from Table 5.A1 (MSMA, 2011) the maximum permissible site
discharge (PSD) and minimum Site Storage Requirement (SSR) values in
accordance with the ive regions in Peninsular Malaysia.
4. Then determine, from Table 5.A2 (MSMA, 2011), the maximum permissible
site discharge (PSD), minimum Site Storage Requirement (SSR) and inlet
values in accordance with the major towns in the peninsula.
19
5. Adopt smaller PSD value from Table 5.A1 and 5.A2 for subsequent sizing
of outlet pipe.
6. Finally, determine the OSD volume, inlet size and outlet size for 5 different
regions in the peninsula from Table 5.A3.

CASE STUDY OF ON-SITE DETENTION FOR LOW DENSITY RESIDENTIAL


LAND-USE IN KUALA LUMPUR
1.1 OSD in MSMA (2000)
This case study concerns the design of a below-ground, on-site detention
(OSD) facility using the guidelines described in MSMA (2000) and MSMA
(2011) for a low density residential development near SK Taman Maluri, Kuala
Lumpur. Based on Table 4.1 of the manual, the design ARI for minor system
for low density residential is 2 years. The design ARI for OSD storage is 10 years
according to MSMA (2000). The design rainfall is based on Chapter 13 of the
Manual. The design storm for Kuala Lumpur is used in the calculation. It is
estimated that 70% of the areas may be considered as impervious and 30%
impervious. The times of concentration adopted are as follows: tc = 10 mins
and tcs = 5 mins.
The SSR values for tc = 5 to 20 mins are plotted as shown in Figure 2. It can
be seen that the maximum SSR is 69.7 m3 for a storm duration of 10 mins.

1.2 OSD in MSMA (2011)


The computation for OSD for low density residential development is identical
to that for industrial land-use presented in the previous section, as MSMA
(2011) does not differentiate between the types of land-use in its computation.
Hence the same results apply here. 21

1.3 Exact Swinburne Method (ESM)


The design rainfall is based on MSMA (2011) for Station No. 4 (SK Taman

EVALUATION
The results of the case studies are evaluated in this section:
1. The approach in MSMA (2011) is based on the Approximate Swinburne
Method which is based on approximation tables and not formulas as in
the irst edition (MSMA, 2000).
2. The result of PSD and SSR for industrial land-use in Kuala Lumpur are
summarised in Table 1 for both editions of MSMA. It can be seen that
MSMA (2011) gives PSD and SSR of about 0.15 and 2.35 times, respectively,
of MSMA (2000).
3. The ESM Method gives PSD and SSR of 0.49 and 1.14 times, respectively, of
MSMA (2000) for the site in Kuala Lumpur as shown in Table 1.
4. The result of PSD and SSR for low density residential land-use in Kuala
Lumpur are summarised in Table 2. It can be seen that MSMA (2011) gives
PSD and SSR of about 0.21 and 2.17 times, respectively, of MSMA (2000).
5. The ESM Method gives PSD and SSR of 0.6 and 0.71 times, respectively, of
MSMA (2000) for the same site in Kuala Lumpur as shown in Table 2.

6. The results showed that the ESM Method gives a higher estimate of the
PSD but a lower estimate of the SSR by using the formulas in Swinburne
Method (instead of the Approximate Swinburne Method in MSMA, 2011)
and the rainfall and discharge data from MSMA (2011).
7. MSMA (2011) has serious limitations as it cannot be applied outside the
17 major towns in Peninsular Malaysia as listed in Table 5.A2 which gives
the maximum permissible site discharge (PSD), minimum Site Storage
Requirement (SSR) and inlet values.

FORUM
The mini hydro project is located in the Bukit Tinggi
forest reserve, at the Chamang Waterfall recreational
area. The project utilises the head differential and river
low of Sungai Perting to generate electrical energy.
The hydropower plant delivers 6 MW of power to TNB
via the interconnection point at SSU Kg. Baru under the
Renewable Energy Programme.
The electricity generated by the plant will displace part
of the electricity generated by the grid dominated by the
conventional fossil fuel-ired power plants. This will prevent
further environmental pollution caused by the burning of
such fuel. In terms of economic sustainability, by using water
a free, sustainable and indigenous resource to generate
renewable energy, this mini hydro project helps lessen the
nations dependency on depleting fossil fuel especially as
prices have risen sharply over the years.

Uniied-simpliied approach and virtual displacement approach

THE INSTITUTION OF ENGINEERS, MALAYSIA


FORUM
He was also involved in the drafting of Malaysias Eurocode 8. His topic on
Eurocode 2, from the consulting engineers perspective, emphasised on the
need for engineers to understand the fundamentals of structural analysis and
design.
The uniied-simpliied approach to structural analysis, emphasised
deformations, principle of virtual displacement (PVD), matrixes and others,
allows engineers to carry out a quick check on structural analysis. Professor
Hee talked briely about simple checks in elemental design calculations.
He went on to prove that the results of his hand calculations and the Midas
elemental results were similar.
He acknowledged that there was a need for fast and prompt analysis
results, so CAE software such as Midas, aids engineers by delivering results
eficiently. However, engineers were reminded that they should always
check if the software results were reasonable through simple close form hand
calculation.
After lunch, the irst speaker was Professor Richard Liew from the
Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, National University of
Singapore, who was involved in drafting Eurocode 3 for Singapore. His topic
on Steel Design as per Eurocode 3, gave an overview on what to expect
when adopting EC3. He made a brief comparison of BS5950 and Eurocode
to show the beneits and lexibilities of EC3. However, most checks in EC3
were presented in expressions, so Eurocode is geared towards computer-
based designs.
Professor Liew presented a few case studies on structural steel and mixed
systems that he had undertaken. High proile projects in Singapore, such as
the Marina Bay integrated resort, Art Science Museum, Gardens By The Bay
and Jewel at Changi Airport, illustrated the complexity of structural steel
design. Due to the architectural complexity, most of the designs required
computer-aided software to analyse the structural behaviour. Professor Liew
also illustrated the composite structure system which was becoming more
common as architecture demands became more complex. Composite steel
structures allowed a lighter structure, eficient layout and achieved longer
lifespan. He summed up the importance of close form hand calculation and
the need to spend more time on global stability checks.
Mr. Hans Kang, Civil and Structural Engineer of technical support for
Midas, presented a special feature on Midas nGen and Design+. He showed
the audience how to input lateral loads, method of consideration of 1st order
and 2nd order effect in Midas nGen, and the automatic load combination
input to Eurocode. The special feature in Midas nGen gives further lexibility
for engineers to adjust design parameters. Some automated functions in
Midas nGen can assist in reducing human error.
Midas nGen loading input can be seamlessly exported into the Midas
Design+ element design. With this feature, much of the detailing can be
extracted easily and it can be used in many element designs, such as RC 43
beams, columns, staircase,
footings, steel connections
etc. Mr. Kang ended by
sharing how Midas software
