Seismic Response of Masonry Cross Vaults: Shaking table testing and numerical validation

This special issue of Journal of the International Journal of Architectural Heritage is devoted to the analysis of the seismic behaviour of masonry cross vaults. It is striclty related to the SERA-TA project "Seismic Response of Masonry Cross Vaults: Shaking Table tests and Numerical validations", funded by the EU within the SERA Call: H2020-INFRAIA-2016-1. ​

The following topics will be considered:
- The results of the shaking table tests on a full-scale masonry mortared cross vault without and with strengthening measures (TRM).
- The results of the blind predictions of the shaking table tests, performed by means of advanced numerical analyses with different models and approaches (e.g. finite element method, discrete element method, discrete micromodel approach).
- The results of postdictions for the shaking table tests , carried out after completion of the blind predictions.
- Critical assessment of the experimental and numerical results.
