Read or download book entitled Numerical Modelling of Masonry and Historical Structures written by Bahman Ghiassi which was release on 15 July 2019, this book published by Woodhead Publishing. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: This volume provides detailed information on the theoretical background and practical guidelines for numerical modeling of unreinforced and reinforced (strengthened) masonry and historical structures. The chapters explore the nonlinear performance simulations (nonlinear static and dynamic analysis) for seismic performance assessment. Numerical modeling of masonry structures has always been a challenging task due to their complex and highly anisotropic behavior. Selection of suitable modeling techniques and appropriate selection of input parameters from phenomenological formulas or obtaining them from experimental tests have a great influence on the numerical outputs and therefore reliability of the simulations. Numerical simulation of the performance of masonry structures after strengthening with advanced composite materials is even more challenging and complex. This latter subject is rather recent and has received less attention in the literature. The book consists of four main sections: (i) Seismic vulnerability analysis of masonry and historical structures (ii) Numerical modeling of unreinforced masonry (iii) Numerical modeling of FRP-strengthened masonry (iv) Numerical modeling of TRM-strengthened masonry Each section is divided into several chapters, each reflecting the theoretical background and current state of the art, and to provide practical guidelines for simulations and use of input parameters. Authors have adhered to a 'high-level' outline template for to ensure some degree of continuity across the volume: Introduction Theoretical background Practical guidelines (or discussions) Case studies and validation Conclusions (including a discussion of research needs) Covering issues related to advanced methodologies for seismic vulnerability assessment of masonry and historical structures Focus on modeling techniques used for nonlinear analysis of unreinforced masonry and strengthened masonry structures Following a theory to practice approach International diversity of authorship
