Abstract
This research presents an experimental and numerical study focusing on the compression test of cylindrical samples core drilled from existing masonry walls. This method is suitable for the minor destructive assessment of the mechanical properties of historical masonry, like that composed of aerial lime mortar joints and solid clay bricks. This particular material combination, frequently found in the vast majority of the built cultural heritage, was utilized to build representative specimens that...
