Mechanics of Masonry Structures

  • Maurizio Angelillo
  • Recent advances in functional analysis and homogenization applied to masonry are transformed into reliable analytical tools for practitioners

  • Includes more than 50 examples helping the reader in training with unilateral models and interface models

  • A special introductory chapter introduces the reader to singular stress field approximations and homogenization

About this book


The experience of people working with different perspectives in different fields of masonry modeling, from mathematics to applied engineering and practice, is brought together in this book. It presents both the theoretical background and an overview of the state-of-the-art in static and dynamic masonry modeling.
