This article aims to analyze the mechanical characteristics of an innovative constructive system for arches and vaults made of hollow wooden boxes designed with interlocking joints. This new technology ensures at the same time good mechanical performances and fast installation and servicing. Experimental studies have been conducted on the base material, on the individual blocks and, thereafter, on an arch built in scale 1:1 to evaluate the displacements, the deformations and the maximum load to failure and to examine its compatibility with the provisions of the code on force. Finally a limit analysis has been developed to model the behavior of the structural system under the testing load.
