Question

I'm almost certain that this has been discussed, but scrolling through hundreds of pages to find the answer seems a little too tedious.
I'm doing a school project and I need to know without a doubt, whether or not Burj Dubai will have a TMD or not, and how big it will be.
Any info would be appreciated!

You will NOT found that info in here, becouse the original plans never had any TMD. What were considered were water tanks on the first floors of the steel structure to do the balancing.

However someone said that now they are considering to put a TMD but how true it is or what their decission is, no one here knows for sure.

Thanks.

Thanks for that info.
With the developers keeping evertything secret and several design changes, I guess it would be hard to find anything conclusive about specific components like that.

Don't worry I'm a carefull planner and I knew what I was doing.

Actually the "Refule" sign came up last night but I knew where I had to go this morning, what was the distance I had to drive and where are the petrol stations, which actually was 1 km drive from where I took the picture.

BTW I can drive for 40 - 50 km after the warning sign comes up.

I'm watching it right now, it's available on usenet alt.binaries.tv

First third of the show is about the Burj Dubai, next about a big printer and the last item is about Ski Dubai.

The number 48.5 is NOT photoshopped, is just the reflection of the flash.
What the hell you drive with fuel consumption 23 litres per 100 km?


Just to show you forumers that even in Central Europe you can "enjoy" such a temperature:

It was very interesting. I was watching the show prior to "Really Big Things" on Discovery Channel and just so happened to see Dubai on the screen. I then realized that they were going to do a piece on Burj Dubai, and that certainly kept me watching.
