Abstract

The development of adequate stress analyses for masonry structures represents an important task not only for verifying the stability of masonry constructions, as old buildings, historical town and monumental structures, but also to properly design effective strengthening and repairing interventions. The analysis of masonry structures is not simple at least for two reasons: the masonry material presents a strong nonlinear behavior, so that linear elastic analyses generally cannot be considered as adequate; the structural schemes, which can be adopted for the masonry structural analyses, are more complex than the ones adopted for concrete or steel framed structures, as masonry elements require often to be modeled by two- or three-dimensional elements. As a consequence, the behavior and the analysis of masonry structures still represents one of the most important research field in civil engineering, receiving great attention from the scientific and professional community.
