How Super Tall Buildings Like the Burj Khalifa Reach Such Great Heights

Real Engineering explains how super tall buildings like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Tapei 101 in Taiwan use things like vortex shedding and mass dampers to cancel out the incredible forces working on them and achieve such great heights.

This month I was visiting my parents living in Dubai and I took the chance to make a video about the Burj Khalifa, while I was there. The building is amazing and the engineering behind it is fascinating. In this video we will learn about vortex shedding and mass dampers.
