Reference persons FABIO DI TRAPANI
External reference persons Dr. Vasilis Sarhosis University of Leeds UK
Thesis type SPERIMENTALE
Description The thesis will be held at the University of Leeds for at least 4 months and will focus on the analysis of numerical and experimental behaviour of masonry elements (piers, spandrels) and / or historical masonry components (columns, arches) subject to vertical and seismic loads. The student is required to perform discrete finite element modeling, aimed at defining optimal modelling protocols and / or experimental shake table tests of scale specimens associated with theoretical interpretations.
