The paper deals with the out-of-plane seismic response of slender unreinforced masonry walls. Several failure mechanisms are analysed through linear and nonlinear kinematic procedures. The analyses have enabled three key issues regarding the expected out-of-plane failure mechanisms to be highlighted, specifically the wall constraints, the friction at the interface between wall and roof, the magnitude of the wall loading.

Abstract

The paper deals with the out-of-plane seismic response of slender unreinforced masonry walls. Several failure mechanisms are analysed through linear and nonlinear kinematic procedures. The analyses have enabled three key issues regarding the expected out-of-plane failure mechanisms to be highlighted, specifically the wall constraints, the friction at the interface between wall and roof, the magnitude of the wall loading.
