The Geometrical Limits of the Carillon Bell
Abstract:Bells which are used in carillons should have a recognisable pitch. It will be achieved if the lowest five partial tones have the relative tone sequence: C4 - C5 - Eb5 - G5 - C6. Although every bell founder uses his own bell profile, the mutual differences are rather small. Research was done into the question if this is unavoidable or if there are profiles which are much more distinct from the traditional bell profile. The result was a number of bells with the same tone structure, but quite different shapes.
