Aim of this research was to evaluate the possible application of the AE technique to study the response of multiple leaf masonry repaired with different techniques. The results of shear tests carried out on three specimens repaired after failure are presented on an explorative basis; on two of them the acoustic emission (AE) technique was also used. Through a number of sensors and by triangulation, this technique makes it possible to identify the location of the damage, unknown initially, and subsequently to assess the stability of its evolution. Using the AE technique the area of the material where the cracks propagated during shear tests was identified. These analyses made it possible to evaluate the effectiveness of repair interventions through parameters other than stress and strain, and contributed to the identification of the most suitable methodology for their optimisation.

Abstract

Aim of this research was to evaluate the possible application of the AE technique to study the response of multiple leaf masonry repaired with different techniques. The results of shear tests carried out on three specimens repaired after failure are presented on an explorative basis; on two of them the acoustic emission (AE) technique was also used. Through a number of sensors and by triangulation, this technique makes it possible to identify the location of the damage, unknown initially, and subsequently to assess the stability of its evolution. Using the AE technique the area of the material where the cracks propagated during shear tests was identified. These analyses made it possible to evaluate the effectiveness of repair interventions through parameters other than stress and strain, and contributed to the identification of the most suitable methodology for their optimisation.
