No, the steel section still starts at L157 as planned...but there is 2 more floors of concrete surrounding those floors as it's integrated into the top of the building.....it also acts as a ballast for the steel structure.

btw do u know the DMSL at Burj Dubai?

Uhm ... then why are they wanna put a TMD now? piles could take the load i believe as its safety factor shld be quite high .. but the column/slab? or is it gonna be inside the core wall area? if inside the corewall then still ok...

btw, the TMD, is it gonna be like a pendulum? or like the SWFC ?
That was the stipulated pile test for those columns (1200mm x 31.2m)

The epoxy coating is because that area is a very old marsh bed and just 12m below the surface is brackish water as you get down to sea level.

The whole piles were coated for oxide protection from the salty water which accelerates the deteriation of the concrete.

The foundation mat has already "settled 40mm" since construction began; but the tolerances are very high in the safety margins.

I'm not sure what the Data Mining Specification Language is for this area as I'm not a ground surveyor; but you can read about the testing at...

http://dubaimegaprojects.com/docs/bu...g-of-piles.pdf

As for the TMD....I have no idea! Hopefully one like in SWFC but all I know is they have set aside £20,000,000 AED in the overall budget.

F-16s are an Air Force jet. You must mean F/A-18 if it came from the carrier.
I work near that area and I have seen the NIVITZ somewhere in 2000, but after the 9/11 they dock further away for safey reasons.

BTW I was the one who named them F-16s when Imre first posted the pic a couple of months ago, and I even used to have a F/A-18 Hornett model and a Harrier as well and guess: the Nivitz also. My brother brought them (an Appache and a destroyer as well) from a visit to US more then a decade ago.

Henrik, if you take your time and read some of the files I've posted there, all of the questions you've asked are answered.

The quote you don't understand is a private joke between them and me!

I was having a special moment with my homies....but not in the same way you have special moments with your male friends!

Oh...you can stop being pissed at me now....I've re-activated your account at SSP. Now be a good boy or I'll smack your bottom!

___________________________________

Vanhenrik, I know L142 was supposed to be 6.2m high and L143 is supposed to be 4.0m high and I know that when they do L144....that too is supposed to 6.2m high.

However, when I get my heights thay come from the GPS readings that are taken every day.
That's when I know what the deviation is...some are 4.04m or 6.17m....so over 140 floors what was designed on paper at these heights can be out by 2 or 3 meters.

Get the timing wrong by 2-3 days and measure from the "building datum" to the "last floor", instead of to the pinnacle of construction and you have your descrepancy growing between the two.

The other site has the same pre-determined heights that I have but uses them when a floor is finished so it's not very accurate.

My measurements are precise down to 0.2mm
