The whole castle and especially the square tower are being threatened by cracks in the stonework.
Consultant Engineers Pfanner Baustatik were charged to develop solution for preventing further crack formation.
The palace façade has already been modelled in RFEM and design with special tension anchors to stop crack growth. Currently, the square tower is being modeled including a difficult geometry.
The tower changes over from a round tower to a square tower in the upper part. The three-layer masonry has been modeled with two layers and coupling surfaces in RFEM.
