Unreinforced Masonry, a popular construction material with a rich historical legacy, has been resilient through centuries, despite its susceptibility to failure through various loading conditions such as seismic forces. Understanding the mechanical behaviour of masonry, particularly the cohesion and frictional mechanisms at interfaces between...

The preservation of historical heritage buildings frequently requires the assessment of brick masonry structures. These structures exhibit complex behaviour due to the arrangement of units and the interaction between bricks and mortar. This study aims to compare two modelling techniques for simulating masonry's compressive response and...

The gas production in the Groningen gas field of the Netherlands has caused a significant amount of shallowhuman induced earthquakes. Among various building typologies, Groningen is home to many Dutch historical churches constructed by unreinforced masonry which has shown to be highly vulnerable to these earthquakes. From the perspective of...

Gas-induced earthquakes are a major problem in the north of the Netherlands due to many unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings being located in this area. To improve the seismic performance of the URM buildings, existing structures must be retrofitted and if the aesthetic of the building is important, the implemented retrofitting technique must...

The increasing seismic activity observed in the last few years in the northern part of the Netherlands (Groningen region) due to geo-resources exploitation raised the need of assessing the current building stock, which is mainly made of low-rise unreinforced masonry structures. <br/>In this thesis the performance of the equivalent frame...
