A nonlinear static analysis of a masonry church by NOSA-ITACA

The last tutorial (Tutorial4) about a non linear static analysis of a masonry church performed by the NOSA-ITACA code, is now available at http://www.nosaitaca.it/software/. We perform the analysis supposing the structure made of two masonry-like materials with zero tensile strength and bounded compressive strength and a linear elastic material.

Modal analysis of historical masonry structures: Linear perturbation and software benchmarking

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0950061818322116 The mechanical behavior of masonry materials has a common feature: a nonlinear behavior with high compressive strength and very low tensile strength. As a consequence, old masonry buildings generally present cracks due to permanent loads and/or accidental events. Therefore, the characterization of the global dynamic behavior of masonry structures should take into account the presence of existing cracks.
