Part of the Geotechnical, Geological and Earthquake Engineering book series (GGEE, volume 45)

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the seismic behaviour of masonry structures. A brief description of the types of masonry is provided. The collapse mechanisms related to masonry structures are discussed in details both for single-story and multi-story buildings.
