Reinforcement of the hypar shell in Magdeburg

The hypar shell in Magdeburg, built according to the plans of civil engineer Ulrich M├╝ther, is one of the largest concrete shell constructions of its kind. The roof construction consists of four hyperbolic paraboloid shells. The hypar shell, a listed building, already showed structural damage years ago. In recent years these have become more prominent, so that a reconstruction concept has been sought. Based on an inventory analysis, it was decided to strengthen the shell construction with carbon reinforced concrete. The structure will be saved from demolition by applying a protective 10mm thin carbon reinforced concrete layer on the top and bottom of the concrete shell.
