Instandsetzung des stählernen Glockenstuhls im Ulmer Münster
|Published in:||Stahlbau, June 2011, n. 6, v. 80|
Repair of the steel belfry in the Ulm Minster, Germany.
The famous main tower of Ulm Minster contains a steel bell frame from 1897. Situated in the tower’s medieval part, it was erected during the completion of the tower in the late 19th century as a substitute for an ancient wooden construction. The riveted steel structure of the bell frame shows a very efficient and, in its time, modern design. Due to heavy corrosion on the profiles and joints, a thorough restoration had to be carried out. With view on the exceptional qualities of the structure, one of the main goals was a maximum preservation of the original material as well as of the bell frame’s general character and appearance. Based on a meticulous damage survey, it was possible to develop a restoration considering local damage as well as general structural shortcomings.
