Why Does the Leaning Tower of Pisa Tilt?
Structural problems of inclination of Pisa tower of Italy
The exceptional inclination of the Tower generates a dangerous concentration of vertical compression forces in the lower masonry. The situation is particularly un-favorable in the 1st arcade, where:
How to reduce the rate of leaning of the leaning tower of Pisa?
Its inclination is inch / 20 years if it is going on same rate after 300 years it will become plane with ground because up to 300 years it may remain safe. Some efforts were made by different engineers in different period of time some of them are given below:
This consists in the application of forces which diminish the capsizing action of the Tower's weight and inclination. The forces can be vertical (ingots of lead, anchorage) or horizontal stays.
This system provides a means of countering potential unforeseen occurrences during future interventions on the Tower.
Hypothesis for a medium term intervention intended to substitute the weights, reducing unsightliness of counter-weighting.
