Modeling the Static Behaviour of a Double Curvature Brickwork Vault
For safety assessment, a double curvature hollow bricks cloister vault with lunettes has been studied. Its geometry, constructive aspects, crack pattern have been surveyed and a 3D finite element analysis has been carried out, the numerical model exploiting the accurate survey of the vault geometry.
