Publication abstract (click to enlarge):

This article presented and discussed the results of an experimental campaign carried out on traditional brick masonry infills of south European countries under out-of-plane loading simulated through an airbag. The influence of previous in-plane damage, central openings and workmanship in the out-of-plane performance was analyzed.


It is important to gather better insi
