The aim of this paper is to present an effort towards a multiscale model of the inelastic behaviour of masonry brick panels and the relative solution algorithm. The essential features of the inelastic behaviour, such as the damage development within the bed joints and the frictional dissipation over cracks’ faces, are taken into account. Micromechanical solutions are adopted in order to trace the guidelines for modelling the mentioned phenomena, and FEM analyses of large-scale panels are shown.
