Al Dana, Al Raha Beach, Abu Dhabi, UAE

Synopsis:
Analysis of temporary and permanent loading cases for as constructed diaphragm wall
Contractor:
Aldar Laing O’Rourke JV
End Client:
Aldar Laing O’Rourke JV

In the continuation of transforming Abu Dhabi, a new city, Al Raha, is to be developed into a cosmopolitan, waterfront place to live.

Tony Gee was requested to carry out Diaphragm Wall Structural and Geotechnical Analysis on reclaimed land adjacent to the sea, using the PLAXIS finite element analysis program, alongside reviewing seismic and wave loading cases.

A 10m deep basement was originally envisaged; however temporary excavations and dewatering behind the wall reduced the load, allowing a deeper basement to be constructed.
