Test­ing time for The Tower

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

De­vel­oper Emaar Prop­er­ties says ad­vanced wind tun­nel tests have con­firmed the struc­tural strength and dura­bil­ity of The Tower at Dubai Creek Har­bour. The tower, which will fea­ture ob­ser­va­tion decks, ac­com­mo­da­tion and re­tail, has been de­signed by Span­ish-Swiss ar­chi­tect San­ti­ago Cala­trava and will be lo­cated in the 6 sqkm com­mu­nity. Emaar said it com­mis­sioned first-of-their-kind wind tun­nel tests for The Tower at Dubai Creek Har­bour, which it said are cru­cial in de­cid­ing the fi­nal height and de­sign of the high-rise build­ing. More than 10 dif­fer­ent anal­y­sis and test­ing meth­ods were used to an­a­lyse all pos­si­ble sce­nar­ios. The tests were done to a scaled model.
