THE GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING BEHIND THE ARABIAN TOWER
Introduction
The making of any engineering structure requires vast information, calculation, a thorough
examination of physical laws and empirical performance of the structures of different materials
and geometrics applied in the construction process. The foundation of the structure is key as any
structure must be anchored by the ground. Geotechnical engineering examines the properties of
earth materials hence determining their ability to anchor structures ("Geotechnical and Geological
Engineering", 2004). The Arabian Tower was a unique gigantic structure due to its high and the
fact that it was to be constructed on the ocean. The scale and immensity of the structure are
fascinating, and those behind the initiation and construction must get full credit of turning a dream
into a reality.

Structural Design
The engineering behind the tower appeared complicated even before the real construction
started. With the whole world watching, the project attracted the best architects around the globe.
The design was expected to take into account the wind loads intensifying the complexity.

Base construction
The geotechnical engineering concepts set in during the construction of the base of the
tower which will anchor it. The base was the most challenging task as the tower was to be erected
over the waters of the ocean. Considering the large size of the structure, it was mandatory for the
base to be strong considering the external forces like ocean waves and wind. A decision was made
to make an island which will act as the base and foundation of the g...

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
