The moving parts in a mechanical device often rely on rolling or sliding contacts such as in ball bearings to gain motion. These suffice in many applications, but the friction inherent to their working principle limits their motion repeatability and thereby their precision. Flexure mechanisms are a popular alternative in the field of precision...

The present work aims to expand the knowledge of the behaviour of masonry corners, which are capital to obtain an integral seismic response in masonry buildings. In particular, the influence of the seismic load orientation (from π/4 to π/2) is investigated experimentally, numerically and analytically. Both units and interfaces have been...
