There is a very popular fable, dating back to the early 1800s, about three little pigs that build their houses of different materials and a wolf that tries to catch them by blowing down their houses. From the three houses built from straws, sticks or bricks, only the house made out of bricks withstands the blow of the wolf. Although the moral of...

Plane-stress and shell macromodels are often preferred to analyze masonry structures because of their numerical efficiency. However, they often misestimate the hysteretic behavior of the structures. Additionally, due to the nature of smeared cracks, the cracks may be diffused. This article proposes a new orthotropic model, which focuses on...

In the region of Groningen (NL), human-induced earthquakes initiated by gas extraction are causing structural damage. In that area, the building stock is mainly composed of unrein- forced masonry (URM) buildings with light and flexible timber floors and roofs. Thus, an ex- perimental campaign was arranged for assessing the in-plane response of...

Recent, light earthquakes induced by the extraction of gas in the north of the Netherlands have been linked to light, mostly aesthetic damage of the traditional masonry structures in the region; this is also connected to economic losses and societal unrest. To be able to accurately assess the light damage, detailed finite element models are...

This paper proposes a sub-step based iterative constitutive model for line interface elements used to analyse masonry structures loaded in-plane. Based on a total deformation theory, the model adopts characteristics of multi-surface plasticity, including a Coulomb friction failure surface for shear, with tension and compression cut-off and...
