Analisi statica non lineare di edifici in muratura esistenti mediante modelli strut and tie

A strut and tie model for not reinforced and not confined masonry panel is defined. This model permits to estimate the behaviour of the wall both in the linear elastic field and after the peak load, that is in the cracked non linear field up to the mechanism state. This model constitutes the base of non-linear static analysis method for existing masonry buildings that can be utilized into the practice.
