Special Issue "Theory and Modelling of Historic Masonry Architecture"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2021).
Interests: solid mechanics; masonry structures; limit analysis
As already known, the majority of architectural heritage structures in the world consist of unreinforced masonry constructions. We are talking about a very current issue, particularly in terms of conserving and preserving such wealth, without excluding the ethical aspect of sustainability. Over the years, the scientific community has been formulating different approaches to study the static and seismic behavior of masonry structures and to evaluate their vulnerability.
On this basis, this Special Issue, entitled “Historic Masonry Architecture,” offers the occasion to share experiences on theories, analysis methods, and non-invasive assessment tools in fields of structural masonry and to discuss recent progress in this regard.
