Stress State for Heavy Masonry Panels with Openings
In this paper we study the equilibrium problem of rectangular panels with openings made of a no-tension (masonry-like) material, undergoing, besides their own weight, a uniformly distributed load on their top. Generalizing some well-established results, equilibrated stress fields that are admissible, i.e. compatible with the incapability of the material to withstand traction, are determined.
