Abstract

Masonry structures are a sustainable, economical and traditionally widely used type of construction. However, current masonry design codes are rather conservative, so there is a growing need for revision i.e. calibration of safety factors to improve the allocation of material resources. In this paper, we investigate the probability of occurrence of slip failure along head joints (perpends) in masonry subjected to in-plane loading. An appropriate limit state function is established and the masonry material properties and loads are defined as random variables in order to simulate likelihood of occurrence of a slip failure regime along the head joints. Furthermore, an example of masonry wall with probabilistic analysis outcomes using Monte Carlo simulation is presented and recommendations for further work are provided.
