A critical review of analytical and numerical models for studying masonry out of plane behaviour is presented. One leaf historical masonry, composed by rigid blocks arranged regularly with dry or mortar joints, is considered. Discrete model with rigid blocks, Love-Kirchhoff and Reissner-Mindlin plate models and 3D heterogeneous FEM are adopted.

Static and modal analysis of masonry walls with several boundary conditions are carried on, numerical tests account for in plane size of heterogeneity and structure thickness by means of in and out of plane scale factors. Results show that discrete model is simple and effective for representing masonry behaviour, especially when size of heterogeneity is smaller than overall panel size. Decreasing in plane scale factor, plate models converge to the discrete one, but the Reissner-Mindlin one shows a better convergence and also allows adopting a simple FE for performing numerical analysis.

Abstract

A critical review of analytical and numerical models for studying masonry out of plane behaviour is presented. One leaf historical masonry, composed by rigid blocks arranged regularly with dry or mortar joints, is considered. Discrete model with rigid blocks, Love-Kirchhoff and Reissner-Mindlin plate models and 3D heterogeneous FEM are adopted. An existing simple and effective discrete model is adopted and improved by applying matrix structural analysis techniques for static and modal analysis of masonry walls in the elastic field, but the formulation allows to account also for material nonlinearity. Elastic parameters of both plate models are based on an existing compatible identification between 3D discrete model and 2D plate models. Static and modal analysis of masonry walls with several boundary conditions are carried on, numerical tests account for in plane size of heterogeneity and structure thickness by means of in and out of plane scale factors. Results show that discrete model is simple and effective for representing masonry behaviour, especially when size of heterogeneity is smaller than overall panel size. Decreasing in plane scale factor, plate models converge to the discrete one, but the Reissner-Mindlin one shows a better convergence and also allows adopting a simple FE for performing numerical analysis.
