Abstract

Among the various types of software described in the earlier works of the authors and subsequently published by an Italian software-house, BrickWORK is by far the most significant software tool of the next generation. BrickWORK is the result of algorithmic calculations developed by the authors to perform nonlinear analysis of existing masonry structures. Its potential was realized during the analysis of masonry structures of historical and cultural importance, which will be discussed in this article. Using an iterative procedure, the program allows one to analyse and compute, in 2D and 3D, the degree of safety and the vulnerability level of a masonry structure when it is subjected to vertical loads, foundations settlements and the horizontal action of an earthquake.
