Simulating Failure Mechanisms of Masonry and Historical Structures with DIANA
@ 3pm CEST (Registration - free of charge)
see http://tnodiana.com for registration
This session gives a technical background on the modelling and analysis of masonry structures in DIANA.
The discrete modelling (interface elements), along with the description of the structure behaviour of the joints according to the so called CSC (crack-shear-crush) interface model will be presented.
A classical case-study of a masonry wall with opening will be presented to demonstrate the DIANA capabilities for modelling and predicting failure mechanisms of masonry structures.
