The present paper has the purpose to compare the shear strength obtained using the values proposed by the code for a level of knowledge LC3 [1,2] of a masonry structure with those experimentally obtained from the mechanical tests with flat jacks and the compression tests on stone elements. The shear strength criterion of Mohr-Coulomb has been utilized, applying for the cohesion and friction angle the values obtained by the non-linear criterion of Hoek-Brown for rock masses [3]. For the last criterion an analogy has been assumed between rock mass and masonry; it has been properly adapted to the specific case of masonry structure examined in the paper.

Abstract

The present paper has the purpose to compare the shear strength obtained using the values proposed by the code for a level of knowledge LC3 [1,2] of a masonry structure with those experimentally obtained from the mechanical tests with flat jacks and the compression tests on stone elements. The shear strength criterion of Mohr-Coulomb has been utilized, applying for the cohesion and friction angle the values obtained by the non-linear criterion of Hoek-Brown for rock masses [3]. For the last criterion an analogy has been assumed between rock mass and masonry; it has been properly adapted to the specific case of masonry structure examined in the paper.
