Abstract

The Aim of this chapter is studying statics of masonry arch. Limit Analysis of the arch, under vertical and horizontal forces, together with the research of its minimum thrust, is pursued by direct application of the general theory presented in the previous chapter. The minimum thrust is determined for the round and for the depressed arch, examining the strict connection existing between the geometry of the pressure line and the hinge position of the corresponding settlement mechanisms. This chapter ends by examining and discussing the tests performed in laboratories to study the masonry arch behavior.
