Introduction
There are many masonry monumental structures in the world such as buildings, palaces, bridges and towers. Modelling of the masonry structures has become a significant requirement to evaluate the strengths of existing masonry structures and to build modern masonry structures. The response of historic masonry buildings to tectonic ground displacements is studied through analysis of a simple yet representative soil–foundation–masonry wall system. Unreinforced masonry can be defined generally as masonry that contains no reinforcing in it. A shared understanding of these facts and definitions will be helpful to conversations between engineers and non-engineers, when discussing a risk reduction program Modelling of the masonry walls is a challenging issue because of their composite structures. There are several modelling techniques for modelling of walls constituting the masonry structures. Macro modelling and micro modelling are two different technique for modelling of masonry structures. In this issue, the macro modelling and micro modelling techniques are investigated on the masonry walls. Masonry walls are modelled and analyzed to determine the fracture mechanisms of the walls. In-plane behaviors of unreinforced masonry walls are analyzed numerically. A number of studies can be found in the literature on these different modeling approaches using or implementing different finite element codes. This Issue is aimed to give a contribution to the comparison of different modeling strategies with specific reference to the use of commercial finite element code and experimental method such as 1g and ng modelling. A general problem in experimental testing of civil engineering structures such as masonry wall relates to the required size of the test unit: the examined structures are normally of such large dimensions that it is usually impossible to test entire structures at full-scale (1g). As a consequence, either only parts of the whole structure are tested or the test units are model structures which are scaled down to a size that can be accommodated in the testing facility (ng). The other aim of this issue is to provide recommendations for the scaling of bricks and mortar joints for hollow clay brick masonry during 1g and ng modelling.
