Numerical simulation of elastic wave propagation in masonry compared with acoustic emission experimental results KU Leuven
It has been shown in acoustic emission literature that the distance between a possible cracking event and a receiver is affectingthe signal parameters providing a wrong image of the real fracture characteristics. In this study, lab-scale experimentaltests on masonry components are performed in order to determine the disturbance of the acoustic emission wave propertiesand verify the experimental observations via numerical wave propagation ...
Macro Scale Material Characterization In Support Of Meso Scale Modelling Of Masonry Under Uniaxial In-Plane Loading KU Leuven
Abstract: The amount of detailed experimental data on the mechanicalproperties of brick masonry in the literature is limited regarding the orthotropic strength and fracture energy. A combined xperimental/numerical methodology is proposed for the derivation of the macro scale properties of masonry. The experimental aspect deals with the mechanical characterisation of the individual materials, small masonry samples and masonry wallettes, ...
