Abstract

The influence of foundations on the design and behavior of tall buildings is explored by examining two built towers: Burj Khalifa, Trump International Hotel and Tower, and the partially built Plaza Rakyat, a 77 story tower in Malaysia. The paper reviews how foundation conditions were considered in the design of the buildings, and how the foundations were anticipated to influence the behavior of the towers.

Tall Buildings and Their Foundations: Three Examples

Chicago, Illinois

The influence of foundations on the design and behavior of tall buildings is explored by examining two built towers: Burj Khalifa, Trump International Hotel and Tower, and the partially built Plaza Rakyat, a 77 story tower in Malaysia. The paper reviews how foundation conditions were considered in the design of the buildings, and how the foundations were anticipated to influence the behavior of the towers.
