The present work gives a better insight on the in-p la e shear behaviour of one-leaf stone masonry walls made of large stone blocks, a structu al element that is present in many old buildings o f the Northern part of Portugal, including Porto hist oric city centre. Information on this type of walls is still very scarce, in particular in the context of the seismic assessment of existing buildings, fully justifying this investigation. For this purpose, tw elve full-scale one leaf stone masonry… CONTINUE READING
