Abstract
The paper focuses on the numerical prediction of the compressive response of masonry by means of detailed micro-modeling techniques. In such a model, the material constituents (mortar and units) and the unit-mortar interfaces are separately described by means of specific constitutive equations.; The available modeling choices are evaluated through a literature review of related case studies. A systematic approach is proposed and is corroborated by the numerical simulation of a large number of ex...
