Abstract
This paper presents a numerical study of Mallorca Cathedral carried out by means of a FE approach devised for the study of this complex historical construction. Previous studies, including inspection and historical research, have shown that part of the existing damage and deformation might have been experienced during the construction process itself, while later historical processes causing long-term deformation, may also have contributed significantly to the final deformation. In order to analy...
