Abstract

This paper is focused on the elaboration of the results recorded during some dynamic experimental tests executed on a masonry arch placed on a shaking table facility at Laboratory of the ENEA Casaccia Research Center. The experimental results are correlated to the theoretical results obtained by means of some calculus codes, which have been elaborated for applications on masonry structures by the researchers of the Department of Structural Engineering of the University of Naples "Federico II" and suitably modified for the study model. The results have shown that the curves solved by the static calculus may be given an exponential form as the dynamic curves by the tests; moreover, it is evident that the static degradation is much faster than in the seismic response, probably thanks to kinetic energy absorption that helps the structure to resist inertia forces. © 2008 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
