Abstract

Masonry structures are complicated structures and there is, till today, a lack of knowledge and information concerning the behaviour of their structural system under seismic loads. Successful modelling of a masonry historical structure is a prerequisite for a reliable earthquake resistant design. Nevertheless, the transition from the natural image of the real structure observed, to the mathematical solution of the analysis is a very difficult task. This paper presents as a contribution to the solution of the problem. A methodology for the earthquake resistant design of structural systems of historical damaged struc
