Design, Structure, Construction and Analysis of Burj Al Arab, Dubai

  1. 1. BURJ AL ARAB Omar CantuSilvia CarrollDong Ho Kim Kevin Kim
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. The Structure• Exoskeleton Frame
  4. 4. The Structure• Trusses
  5. 5. The Structure• Central Spine
  6. 6. The Structure• Membrane
  7. 7. In Construction• Concrete Superstructure
  8. 8. In Construction• Bracing
  9. 9. Analysis-Trusses • Braces steel frame diagonally • Resists Lateral Loads • Reduce Moment and Deflection
  10. 10. MultistructureAnalysis-Bracing Bracing In Tension • Braces the exterior steel frame • Resists Lateral Loads • Resists Overturning
  11. 11. Analysis-Spine • Lateral loads are transferred from steel frame to central spine • Spine unifies the steel and concrete structures
  12. 12. Analysis-Frame Whole loads are first passed from reinforced concrete in multistory frame to main steel exoskeleton, and then to the foundation.
  13. 13. Lateral Loads
  14. 14. Lateral LoadsWithout Bracing With Bracing
  15. 15. Moment DiagramWithout Bracing With Bracing
  16. 16. 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
  17. 17. The Foundation• Foundation is a piled raft• 250 bored piles using friction• Each is 1.5m and 35m long• Bored through sand• Resists earthquakes
