Numerical Investigations on the Seismic Response of Masonry Building Aggregates
The work focuses on the analysis of the seismic response of masonry building aggregates for a better understanding of the vulnerability of single structural units and of their behaviour within the aggregates. Idealized representative models are developed based on the typical characteristics of the row conglomeration typology. The seismic response of the models is evaluated and discussed by means of nonlinear dynamic analyses.
