In my opinion they will rigidize the steel floors. Most of all against earthquakes and wind forces.

I think so, the function of these diagonals is not to resist vertical loads, but transversal deformations of the global structure.

It's crazy how big this thing looks already. I remember the "old" days when we were looking at pictures of the plot of land wondering if this thing was going to ever get built.

Well the concrete core is usually designed to prevent the buidling from "snapping like a dry quick" during high winds or an earthquake. The concrete core on this building is huge compared to the amount of steel being placed in. I guess maybe the larger than usual lateral earthquake loads in that region make the necessity for additional diagonal bracing in the steel. I have never designed in high earthquake prone areas like this before, so don't quite know the requirements.

Cool building tho, thing is going up crazy fast. Great looking building.

BTW how many floors are they completing each week. Also if completed before BD this will be the second tallest building on the planet after taipei which is 508m. Why dont they just make the height 510m, make it 18 meters taller. add a spire or something.

I thought this was taller than Taipei 101. and it's supposed to be tallest for while till Burj Dubai is finished. That concrete core us surely big, doesn't seem like it's a got an efficient CFA/NLA ratio. Does anyone know what the efficiency is. Also am curious about the cycle time per floor, as it doesn't look like a floor a week, is it?

Hell yeah I still remember that as well.

I was part of the "it's never gonna be built" group back then, so words just can't describe how I feel about looking at photographics of it finally rising.
