This paper deals with the nonlinear analysis of masonry walls loaded in their plane. The masonry is regarded as a composite material made of bricks joined by mortar. To correctly reproduce the mortar-brick interaction in the direction of the thickness of the wall, an enriched kinematic model is proposed, so that the model is able, in a feasible form, to account for the out-of-plane strains due to the in-plane loading acting on the wall. Nonlocal nonlinear constitutive laws are considered both for the mortar and the bricks. In particular, a damage-friction law is considered for the mortar, while a damage model with two alternative yield functions is proposed for the bricks, both based on a tensile failure mechanism. A 2D finite element (FE) accounting for the three-dimensional kinematic effect is developed. This is implemented in a numerical procedure based on the backward Euler step-by-step time integration of the constitutive evolution laws and on the predictor-corrector algorithm for the solution of the nonlinear problem. Five applications are presented to highlight the effectiveness of the proposed nonlinear model and the implemented FE procedure. The first aims to show the model's ability to reproduce the failure of the masonry for transversal damage; the others deal with comparisons with classical small scale and structural scale experimental tests.

Abstract

This paper deals with the nonlinear analysis of masonry walls loaded in their plane. The masonry is regarded as a composite material made of bricks joined by mortar. To correctly reproduce the mortar-brick interaction in the direction of the thickness of the wall, an enriched kinematic model is proposed, so that the model is able, in a feasible form, to account for the out-of-plane strains due to the in-plane loading acting on the wall. Nonlocal nonlinear constitutive laws are considered both for the mortar and the bricks. In particular, a damage-friction law is considered for the mortar, while a damage model with two alternative yield functions is proposed for the bricks, both based on a tensile failure mechanism. A 2D finite element (FE) accounting for the three-dimensional kinematic effect is developed. This is implemented in a numerical procedure based on the backward Euler step-by-step time integration of the constitutive evolution laws and on the predictor-corrector algorithm for the solution of the nonlinear problem. Five applications are presented to highlight the effectiveness of the proposed nonlinear model and the implemented FE procedure. The first aims to show the model's ability to reproduce the failure of the masonry for transversal damage; the others deal with comparisons with classical small scale and structural scale experimental tests.
