Burj Khalifa by Mind Map: Burj Khalifa

1. Type Of Structure

1.1. Burj Khalifa is a combination structure, it has more than one way it is built

1.1.1. Mass structure

1.1.1.1. The materials used like the foundation and metal poles placed in a certain way are what makes it a mass structure

1.1.1.1.1. Those materials are placed in a certain way to produce a certain stability

1.1.2. Frame structure

1.1.2.1. There is a frame for the Burj Khalifa

1.1.2.1.1. The frame is on the outside and that is what makes it a frame stucture

2. External Force

2.1. Dead Load of the Burj Khalifa: The weight of gravity working on itself, the weight of itself

2.2. Live Load of the Burj Khalifa

2.2.1. Carrying people

2.2.2. Carrying Funiture

2.2.3. Supporting malls

2.2.4. Supporting homes

2.3. Dynamic Loads

2.3.1. High winds

2.3.2. Thunderstorm

2.3.3. Natural disaaster

2.3.4. Heavy rainfall

3. How the structure can support various loads

3.1. Dead Load

3.1.1. It has a big and sturdy base to support the weight of itself and gravity It has a big and sturdy base to support the weight of itself and gravity

3.2. Live Load

3.2.1. A clever design so it is strong and can support weight

3.2.2. The elevators have large wires and many safety precautions for people and objects that require an elevator

3.2.3. The frame has solid metal to support lots of weight on the floors. it is also highly tested to be safe

3.3. Dynamic Load

3.3.1. It has different base to resist some of the earthquake impact

3.3.2. Wind resistant by having a tuned mass damper

3.3.2.1. Damper swings to balance weight when wind strikes

3.3.3. Thunder resistant by having lighting rod

3.3.3.1. Makes the lighting slam down on the ground when lighting makes contact. This makes the electricity go to the ground other than stay on the building

3.3.4. Rain is not extremely heavy so normal precautionaries and good structure will be enough

4. Purpose, Form And Function

4.1. Purpose/Function

4.1.1. Residential living space

4.1.2. Space for hotels

4.1.3. Malls for shopping

4.2. Form

4.2.1. Extremely tall

4.2.1.1. Tallest structure in the world

4.2.2. Large base leading to a thin top

4.2.3. Glass as outer layer

4.2.4. Unique shape

5. Other External Forces or Internal Forces of Burj Khalifa caused by External Forces

5.1. Tension

5.1.1. When the winds blow hard against the structure , the foundation could be pulled or streched

5.2. Compresssion

5.2.1. When there is people on the floor the floor fells compression, it is getting pressed by its top layer and bottom

5.3. Other External forces within the Burj Khalifa

5.3.1. Pushing a bottonon the elevator

5.3.2. Pressing the doorbell on a apartment door

5.3.3. The impact of doors closing

6. Center of Gravity on Burj Khalifa

6.1. I think the center of gravity for the Burj Khalifa would be in the exact middle on the bottom floor.

6.1.1. That is because there is no slant from the weigh of the different levels because it is the ground floor

6.1.2. It is also where all the angles and points meet up on the floor
