Abstract:
Construction in the Middle East has many unique challenges. Many areas have extreme high temperatures, low humidity, constant winds, and sulfates in the soils. Areas near the Gulf and Red Seas have corrosion issues from the sea water. This area has had a building boom and is home to some of the tallest buildings in the world. These presentations will discuss how the challenges on construction in the Middle East have been met and how the ACI 318 Code provides the guidance for successful design and construction.
