Abstract

In this chapter, a mechanical model for masonry structures is introduced. Specifically, it is assumed that masonry can be idealized as a particular kind of “no-tension” material. The expected agreement of the model with the real behaviour of masonry buildings is discussed. In this approach, it is assumed that actual masonry may be endowed with a small degree of tensile strength, but that it exhibits brittle rupture under tension stresses. It is proved that the no-tension material model approximates actual stresses, in the sense of complementary energy.
