Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the modelling work performed in the framework of the SEISPROTEC project dealing with the failure of masonry walls. The mortar is represented by means of joint elements and the interface model, together with its mechanical characteristics is presented. Preliminary numerical results obtained for the various scales considered in the project (structural scale/walls, mesoscale/wallettes and microscale/cells) are commented.
