The paper presents a novel micro-mechanical model for the homogenized limit analysis of out-of-plane loaded masonry walls. In the framework of homogenization combined with limit analysis, masonry thickness is subdivided in several layers and for each layer polynomial distributions for the stress fields are a-priori assumed inside a fixed number of sub-domains. In this way, a simple linear optimisation problem is derived in order to obtain out-of-plane homogenized failure surfaces of masonry… Expand
