Abstract

Future structural engineers need to understand how existing structures are and how they work. A significant part of such constructions is made up of stone or brickwork. The complexity of such structures, as well as the difficulty to determine their mechanical properties, requires the use of alternative procedures to the traditional methods used for concrete and steel constructions. This different approach is explained on the Analysis of Historical Masonry Structures course which is taught at the Civil Engineering School of our University from the 1999-2000 academic year. Firstly this paper describes the raison d'être of a course about masonry structures, and then presents the contents of the course, including the student evaluation based on a real case study. Next, this paper points out the close connection between teaching and research. Indeed, this subject has been the source of doctoral theses, articles, and other academic works. Finally, this team’s vision in relation to the future of this discipline is also presented.
