Abstract
This paper presents the results of an experimental programme about the evaluation of the size effect on the compressive behaviour of cylindrical samples of existing masonry. The study focuses on the in-situ coring and experimental testing of core specimens with 150¿mm and 90¿mm diameter. The 150¿mm cylinder, recurrent in minor destructive evaluation of the compressive strength of existing masonry, includes four brick pieces, two mortar beds and one head joint. The 90¿mm specimen includes one...
