Abstract

This work focuses on designing numerical simulations capable of reproducing the non linear response and collapse mechanism of a masonry arch. The selected techniques are based on a discontinuous approach and are developed by means of two different software: Abaqus/Explicit and Yade-DEM. Firstly, there is a detailed survey of the strategies available in each software to represent the heterogeneous media, which shall set the basis of the subsequent model of the arch. This one is then studied considering different load cases, so as to reach conclusions regarding the effectiveness and limitations of the computational simulations.
