Schwerbelastungskörper

Schwerbelastungskörper
The Schwerbelastungskörper (German: "heavy loading body") is a large cylinder made of concrete in Berlin, Germany. It was built by Dyckerhoff & Widmann AG in 1941 for 400.000 Reichsmarks to study the feasibility of constructing large buildings on the sandy ground in the area, in preparation for the planned construction nearby of a massive Triumphal Arch. It is 18 m high and has a mass of 12,650 metric tons. Because of nearby apartment buildings, it was not possible to demolish it with explosives at the end of World War II, so it remained; since 1995 it has been protected as a historic monument.
