ce of short shock load on response of
Numerical and experimental analysis of the dynamic response of a simple
masonry structure is used for the derivation of a hypothesis of masonry
failure under impact load.
The load is generated by a pressure wave of very
short duration in comparison with the 1 .st natural bending frequency of the
The paper shows the influence of the microdefects of the structure
resulting from its loading near its ultimate strength on the magnitude of the
dominant frequency and the response amplitude history.
It determines the
mode of structural failure and the conditions for the determination of the
bearing capacity of the structure beyond the limit of the origin of the first
cracks in the joints between brick blocks.
The conclusions are compared with
