BERLIN- GERMANY - 22 SEP 2009 --  The Schwerbelastungskörper (German: "heavy loading body") is a large cylinder made of concrete in Berlin, Germany. It was built in 1941 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.
