Monument protection

According to historical records, the damage to Yueyang Tower is mainly caused by soldiers, floods, lightning strikes, fires, ants or urban splits. To protect the safety of Yueyang Tower, the conditions for these accidents should be eliminated. Including five aspects:

Fire prevention

Yueyang Tower is a pure wood structure. It is long-lasting, too dry and has a lot of paint. Therefore, the fire is one of her natural enemies and must be absolutely protected from fire. Mainly to prevent fire, fire, lightning. The first is to prevent the power supply from catching fire. The conductive wire must not go upstairs. In special circumstances, it is necessary to use electricity temporarily. After the consent of the relevant departments, a special person should be assigned to hold the site and remove it in time, just in case. The second is to control the flow of fire sources. Fireworks should be eliminated within a certain range of the main building and around the building. It is necessary to patrol the shards and patrol the day and night, and investigate and deal with illegal smoking and burning incense. The third is to dismantle the dilapidated houses and flammable buildings within the absolute protection of Yueyang Tower to prevent fire hazards. The fourth is to prevent lightning strikes.

Yueyang City, where Yueyang Tower is located, is located on the south bank of the middle reaches of the Yangtze River. At the edge of the Dongting Lake Basin, it is a subtropical monsoon humid climate with abundant rainfall. The annual average temperature is 17 °C, and the annual precipitation day is 135-158 days. The average continuous longest rainfall day is 16 days, and the annual precipitation is up to 2336.5 mm. The rainfall is more, which increases the humidity of the air. It poses a threat to the wooden components and building facilities of Yueyang Tower, and also increases the foundation of the building. The difficulty of protection of shore and platform. In 1993 and 1995, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage successively allocated more than 3.8 million yuan to repair and reinforce the revetment. This was because the drainage was not smooth and the bank was damaged. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly check whether there is rain leakage in the building. Regularly divert the drainage system to ensure that the drainage pipe is unblocked and the rainwater is not allowed to immerse in the footing. More rain in the first half of the year is a crucial period for cleaning up the drainage system every year. In addition, we must always be wary of the impact of the high flood of Dongting Lake on the berthing of Yueyang Tower, and pay attention to the timely reinforcement of the lakeshore and the wall.

Yueyang Tower


Because the area where Yueyang Tower is located has a lot of rain, humidity and dense trees, it provides a good “hotbed” for the survival and reproduction of termites. Ants become another enemy of this wooden building. Before the overhaul in 1983, the 12 Nanmu pillars on the first floor of her were not hollowed out by termites, but they were already bad. The entire beam-column structure could no longer withstand the pressure. The four supporting columns on the second floor were all decaying. Termites on Yueyang Tower. The hazard can be seen. Although the effective measures were taken for the prevention and control of termites during the overhaul in 1984, termites are still harmful around the building. Therefore, in daily maintenance work, the combination of prevention and control and prevention should be adhered to. The policy is diligent in testing and strengthening the anti-ant strength.

With the development of the tourism industry, the number of tourists visiting the Yueyang Building to catch the Range Rover has increased, which has brought heavy pressure to the building. When the number of people on the building exceeds 80, the person standing on the upper floor has obvious shock, so the first should be To control the number of people who go upstairs in a row, especially during the tourist season, it is necessary to organize tourists to board the building in batches. The sales order and the management of the building management staff can be used to reduce the pressure on the building. Second, take effective measures to reduce man-made damage. People flow over large stairs and floor slabs are worn out. Bamboo strips and rubber mats should be used for effective protection in these places to minimize the damage to human wood and extend the main building. Life and maintenance cycle.

Control against wild hemp

Wild hemp is a kind of fiber plant, which is light, drought-tolerant, alkali-resistant, adaptable and vigorous. It can be seen everywhere in the slabs of the Yueyang Building and the gap between the roof tiles and the walls. The rhizome can lift the stone wall, causing the stone wall to be displaced and deformed; the area where the glazed tile is handed over can be loosened, causing the top of the ancient building to seep rain, and the wood parts of the ancient building are damaged by the tide for a long time. If termites are the natural enemies of wooden components, then wild hemp is the murder of the stone wall structure. If it is not cured in time, the area is getting bigger and bigger, and the number is more and more, the damage to the abutment and ancient buildings of Yueyang Building is becoming more and more serious. Must be resolutely prevented.
