Abstract

This paper presents a current study into the use of coconut-timber waste as an alternative construction material to build earthquake-resistant timber house in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. The objectives of this research are: to obtain the physical and mechanical properties of coconut-timber, to identify the strength classification of coconut-timber, to design a model of earthquake-resistant house made of coconut-timber, and to perform structural analysis of the house under earthquake load. Research methods include: (1) Laboratory testing of the physical and mechanical properties comprising of moisture content test, density test, tensile test parallel to grain, compression test parallel to grain, compression test perpendicular to grain, shear strength parallel to grain, flexural test, and toughness. All tests were performed according to the American Standard Testing Material (ASTM) D143-09; (2) Identification of strength classification of coconut-timber based on the Indonesian Standard (SNI) 03-35271994; (3) Design of an earthquake-resistant coconut-timber house; (4) Calculation of the dimensions of structural elements of earthquake-resistant coconut-timber house; and (5) Testing of the performance of the coconut-timber house under earthquake load with ETABS software. Results from this research are expected to support the beneficial usage of local coconut-timber waste as construction material for timber house in an effort to mitigate the risk of earthquake hazard in North Sulawesi.
