Experimental determination of the in plane orthotropic compliance matrix of single and double leaves masonry typical of Sicilian heritage

Author(s) : LAURA ANANIA


In the paper the results of an experimental programme aimed both to the assessment and the comparison of the mechanical characteristics of some typologies of a one or twoleaves calcareous brick wallettes scale 1:4 size are discussed. Five Types of wallettes, built by referring to different kind of bricks assemblage have been tested in uniaxial compression, parallel and orthogonal to the mortar bed joints, and in diagonal compression. The data obtained permits us to investigate the dependence of the mechanical proprieties of the masonry from the geometrical typology, in order to better set up a retrofitting design of the damaged masonry by taking into account the real material models
