View From the Burj Dubai

August 23, 2008 at 9:10 pm 5 comments

This is taken from the world’s tallest building Burj Dubai at 2,620ft/801m.

Really amazing. Look at the edge (uppermost right corner) of the picture. You can almost see the “turn” of the earth.

We can not feel the turn of earth. But the persons who are working on the upper most Girders can see the “Rotation of Earth”. So terrifying.

    • The tip of the spire can be seen 103km away with the naked eye.

    • An estimated 330,000m² of cement, 39,000t of steel rebar and 142,000m² of glass will be used in the construction of the Burj Dubai.

    • 22 million man-hours will go into building the world’s tallest landmark.

    • The foundation slab is 80,000ft² in size, while the piling is 50m deep.

    • The Burj Dubai’s observatory lifts (double deck cabs) will have the world’s longest travel distance from the lowest to the highest stop.

    • The Burj Dubai will set the record for the world’s highest lift installation.

    • A condensate collection system will collect condensed water from the hot and humid air and will use it for irrigation requirements across the tower gardens. This will provide around 15 million gallons of additional water a year, equivalent to 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

    • The curtain wall of the Burj Dubai will be equivalent to 17 soccer fields or 25 American football fields.

    • The concrete used for the Burj Dubai is equivalent to a 1900km long pavement.

    • The Burj Dubai has a computerised central service system from Germany to analyse the building’s stability to withstand natural elements.

    • Reflective glass on all the building’s floors will provide protection from sunlight at the same time as making the building’s interiors cooler.

    • It will also feature the world’s fastest elevator, rising and descending at 18m per second or 65 kmph.

  • के भएको थियो ९० सालको भूकम्पमा ?
    यही वैशाख १२, १३ र २९ का ठूला भूकम्प र त्यस बीचमा गएका सयौं का परकम्प र ‘धक्का’ सँगै नेपालमा घटेका विगतका ठूला भूकम्पको बारेका खोज र कौतूहल पनि बढेको छ । भूकम्प मूलतः प्राकृतिक घटना भएपनि ठूला भूकम्पहरू एउटा “अविस्मरणीय खाटा”का रूपमा देशको इतिहासमा रहन्छन् । अहिलेको विनाशकारी भूकम्पभन्दा अगाडिको कुरा गर्ने हो भने ९० साल अर्थात् सन १९३४ को भूकम्प नै नेपालको ल […]
