Megastructures - Hoover Dam

[Image: 37602249937272263921.jpg]


Throughout human history, mankind has built monuments to its ingenuity and skill. In Egypt it was the Pyramids. Rome, built the Colosseum. The Greeks built the Acropolis. The great cathedrals of Europe raised the skills of their builders to unequalled heights, creating awe inspiring structures. In the Americas, the cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde and the high mountain city of Machu Pichu speak to the skill and ingenuity of their builders. In the modern era, it's buildings that reach near half a mile into the sky, bridges that stretch enormous distances in a single span, and machines that extend mankind's reach far into space. One monument that must surely be counted among the great achievements of mankind is Hoover Dam.

National Geographic- Big Bigger Biggest - Burj Dubai

info:
National Geographic Big Bigger Biggest - Burj Dubai


Burj Dubai (Arabic: برج دبي‎ "Dubai Tower") is a supertall skyscraper under construction in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is the tallest man-made structure ever built, at 818 m (2,684 ft). Construction began on 21 September 2004, and the tower is expected to be completed and ready for occupancy on 4 January 2010.[1][2]
The building is part of the 2 km2 (0.8 sq mi) flagship development called "Downtown Burj Dubai" at the "First Interchange" along Sheikh Zayed Road, near Dubai's main business district. The tower's architect is Adrian Smith, who worked with Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) until 2006.[6][7] The Chicago-based architecture and engineering firm SOM is in charge of the project.[6] The primary builders are Samsung Engineering & Construction and Besix along with Arabtec.[8] Turner Construction Company was chosen as the construction manager.[9]
The total budget for the Burj Dubai project is about US$4.1 billion, and for the entire new "Downtown Dubai", US$20 billion.[10] Mohamed Ali Alabbar, the CEO of Emaar Properties, speaking at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat 8th World Congress, said that the price of office space at Burj Dubai had reached US$4,000 per sq ft (over US$43,000 per m2) and that the Armani Residences, also in Burj Dubai, were selling for US$3,500 per sq ft (over US$37,500 per m2).[11]

National Geographic - Megastructures Episodes Collection

[Image: 41460492019820731394.jpg]

[Image: info.png]
MegaStructures is a documentary television series appearing on the National Geographic Channel and Five in the United Kingdom and on France 5 in France.

Each episode is an educational look of varying depth into the construction, operation, and staffing of various structures or construction projects, but not ordinary construction products.

Generally containing interviews with designers and project managers, it presents the problems this involved the or products that are now in general use within the construction industry.

MegaStructures focuses on constructions that are extreme; in the sense that they are the biggest, tallest, longest, or deepest in the world. Alternatively, a project may appear if it had an element of novelty or are a world first (such as Dubai's Palm Islands). This type of project is known as a Megaproject.

The series follows similar subjects as the History Channel's Modern Marvels and Discovery Channel's Extreme Engineering; covering areas of architecture, transport, construction and manufacturing.

National Geographic - Engineering Connections Series 2 (2010)

[Image: 54474504721314974431.jpg]

[Image: info.png]
National Geographic - Engineering Connections Series 2 (2010)
English | DVDRip XviD AC3-MVGroup | AVI | XviD 704x400 1799Kbps 25fps | AC3 192Kbps 2CH 48KHz | 50min each | 6x717MB
Genre: Documentary

It’s back! Richard Hammond’s Engineering Connections returns for a second series and this time it is bigger, bolder and braver than ever with six brand new and exclusive episodes. The intrepid Richard climbs to the top of Sydney Opera House, stands on the summit of the world’s tallest road bridge, closes the roof on Wembley Stadium – and reveals the secrets behind these and other modern day superstructures. Want to learn how Wembley’s arch holds up the roof thanks to a 19th century glider, what connects the Millau Bridge with Teflon, and how a brass band helped to shape Hong Kong International Airport? Join Richard Hammond on his global quest to uncover the incredible ideas and unconventional technologies that lie beneath some of the world’s most iconic structures.
Part 1: Wembley Stadium
Richard kicks off proceedings at Wembley Stadium, the high-tech home of English football. No one can deny the magnificence of Wembley, but how is its towering arch inspired by a medieval crossbow and how did a simple rock climbers’ knot help engineers raise it into place? Richard tracks down the answers – and finds out how experts preserved the famous ‘Wembley Roar’

Part 2: Sydney Opera House
Towering over Sydney Harbour, the famous Opera House is one of the most recognisable and iconic buildings in the world. Richard heads Down Under, takes a stroll along the incredible structure’s roof, learns how its unique “sails” work on the same principles as a simple child’s collapsible toy, and discovers a bizarre engineering connection with a First World War gas mask.

Part 3: HMS Illustrious
The mighty British aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious is an airport, city and battleship all rolled into one, but what are the secrets behind the design of this floating powerhouse? Landing on the vast deck in a helicopter, Richard learns how Tower Bridge, a boomerang, a hearing aid and an 18th century seed drill all have links to one of the most remarkable ocean-going craft in the world.

Part 4: Guggenheim Museum
Starting life as a mere initial scrawl by renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, Bilbao’s illustrious Guggenheim museum is one of the modern cultural world’s most breathtaking structures and display spaces.
This futuristic structure is made of titanium just 0.5mm thick – but how were its unique curves influenced by Russian submarines, a Hawaiian volcano and Sir Walter Raleigh? Richard heads to Spain to find out.

Part 5: Millau Bridge
With its 343 metre-tall pillars, the Millau Bridge linking the roads to Paris and Barcelona dwarfs the Eiffel Tower and is the tallest road bridge in the world.
Undaunted, Richard scales this extraordinary structure to discover its engineering connections with nuclear submarines and ancient Celtic boats. He also learns how the bridge could not have been built without Teflon – and a humble gecko helps him to demonstrate.

Part 6: Hong Kong International Airport
Hong Kong houses the fifth largest international passenger airport in the world – yet before it was built in the late 1990s, its site was no more than a featureless expanse of water.
Richard heads east to learn how the airport was built from scratch on a specially constructed island and reveals how this famous landmark connects with a World War II bomber, cold war spying devices and, oddest of all, a brass band...

Kansai International Airport is an international airport located on an artificial island in the middle of Osaka Bay, off the shore of the cities of Sennan and Izumisano and the town of Tajiri in Osaka Prefecture, Japan. (It should not be confused with Osaka International Airport, which is closer to the city and now handles only domestic flights.) It was ranked 4th overall in the Airport of the Year 2006 awards named by Skytrax, next to Singapore Changi Airport, Hong Kong International Airport and Munich International Airport.

A man-made island, 4 km long and 2.5 km wide, was proposed. Engineers needed to overcome the extremely high risks of earthquakes and typhoons (with storm surges of up to 3 meters). Construction started in 1987. The sea wall was finished in 1989 (made of rocks and 48,000 tetrahedral concrete blocks). Three mountains were excavated for 21 million cubic meters of landfill. 10,000 workers and 10 million work hours over 3 years, using 80 ships, were needed to complete the thirty-meter layer of earth over the sea floor and inside the sea wall. In 1990, a three-kilometer bridge was completed to connect the island to the mainland at Rinku-Town, at a cost of $1 billion. Completion of the artificial island increased the area of Osaka Prefecture just enough to move it past Kagawa Prefecture in size (leaving Kagawa as the smallest by area in Japan).

Super Pipeline

[Image: 0012a179_medium.gif]

English | 720p HDTV | MKV | x264 1280x720 4000Kbps 23.976fps | AC3 448Kbps 2CH 48KHz | 47 min | 1.2Gb

The pipeline runs 1,166 kilometres (725 mi) through the North Sea from the Nyhamna terminal in Norway via the Sleipner Riser platform in the North Sea to Easington Gas Terminal in England. The pipeline is designated to bring natural gas from the Ormen Lange gas process terminal to the UK, but through the connector at Sleipner Riser it provides also an opportunity to send gas through Gassco's existing network to continental Europe.
