Abstract

A further step toward the understanding of the mechanical behaviour of ancient masonry under persistent loading is taken, thanks to a new experimental research performed on the masonry of the collapsed medieval tower of Pavia, subjected to pseudo-creep tests. The laboratory results are interpreted with the help of a visco-elastic rheological model, including damage variables, for a subsequent application to construction analysis.
