Abstract
Macro-models are a common choice for the numerical analysis of large-scale masonry structures. Despite their efficiency in terms of pre-processing and computational cost, these strategies often result in a poor representation of cracking, not properly localized and biased by the finite element mesh orientation. This work presents a remedy to the previous shortcomings through the enhancement of the standard smeared crack approach with a crack-tracking algorithm. The smeared crack approach reduces...
