  • BURJ AL ARAB Omar CantuSilvia CarrollDong Ho Kim Kevin Kim
  • The Design• Resembles a sail• Shipping history• Dubai monument• Built on private island• Tallest hotel in the world• Underwater restaurant only accessible by submarine• Architecture Firm: W.S. Atkins• Based in Surrey, England• Project Lead Architect Tom Wright• Engineering Firm: Al Habtoor• Construction began 1994 with planning and was completed in 1999
  • The Structure• Exoskeleton Frame
  • The Structure• Trusses
  • The Structure• Central Spine
  • The Structure• Membrane
  • In Construction• Concrete Superstructure
  • In Construction• Bracing
  • Analysis-Trusses • Braces steel frame diagonally • Resists Lateral Loads • Reduce Moment and Deflection
  • MultistructureAnalysis-Bracing Bracing In Tension • Braces the exterior steel frame • Resists Lateral Loads • Resists Overturning
  • Analysis-Spine • Lateral loads are transferred from steel frame to central spine • Spine unifies the steel and concrete structures
  • Analysis-Frame Whole loads are first passed from reinforced concrete in multistory frame to main steel exoskeleton, and then to the foundation.
  • Lateral Loads
  • Lateral LoadsWithout Bracing With Bracing
  • Moment DiagramWithout Bracing With Bracing
  • Atrium Membrane • Façade for worlds tallest atrium • Material – Teflon coated Fiberglass • Supported on arched trusses • Trusses supported by cross braced steel rods • Anchored at the bottom, mezzanine at the top • Reduces glare and allows diffused lighting into atrium
  • The Foundation• Foundation is a piled raft• 250 bored piles using friction• Each is 1.5m and 35m long• Bored through sand• Resists earthquakes
