In this paper, an equilibrated homogenization model for the limit analysis of running bond masonry walls is revised. Assuming brickwork under plane stress condition and adopting a polynomial expansion for the 2D stress field, a linear optimization problem is derived on the elementary cell in order to recover the homogenized failure surfaces of the brickwork. Different models of higher accuracy can be obtained by increasing ad libitum the degree of the polynomial approximation. The homogenized… Expand
