Paper Title:
Micro-Destructive Flat-Jack Test for the Diagnosis of Historic Masonry
  Abstract

The present paper describes one of the most important slightly destructive technique used in the masonry survey: the flat-jack test. The test method is described in a critical way, emphasizing advantages and drawbacks. Besides, the relation between the flat-jack test and a numerical modelling is explored.
