Abstract
A set of experimental tests to determine the compressive strength of masonry stack prisms has been numerically simulated using a combined plasticity-smeared crack constitutive law employed in three-dimensional analysis. Supported by an experimental campaign for the mechanical characterization of lime mortar masonry, a series of finite element analyses was performed in an attempt to assess the capacity of the model to reproduce the results obtained in terms of capacity, failure mode and global st...
