Dear All,

Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest tower ever built by humans, was inaugurated on 4th Jan 2010. I have prepared a PowerPoint Presentation based on the material available on the Net for your reference, and as a tribute to this engineering Marvel. Hope all will enjoy reading it.

Best wishes
Subramanian

I am giving below the Health Monitoring System of Burj Khalifa

In addition to the recorded building acceleration and displacements depicted in Figure 14, a complete system identification was performed for the tower and included the estimation of the tower’s natural frequencies and damping. Predicted natural frequencies from the 3-D FEAM and the measured frequencies were within a 2 to 3 percent range, including the higher modes. The temporary real-time monitoring program was conceptualized, funded, and installed by Samsung in cooperation with Notre Dame University (Kareem, Kijewski, and Kwon) – serving as a seed program for expansion of the monitoring system into a state-of-the-art full scale structural health monitoring program.


Detailed summary of the temporary real time monitoring program configuration and building movement during construction (due to Sept. 10, 2008 earthquake in Iran)
