This website presents new interactive
computational analysis tools for masonry
structures based on limit state analysis.
Thrust lines are used to clearly visualize the
forces within the masonry and to predict
possible collapse modes. The models are
interactive and parametric to explore the
relation between the different geometrical
parameters and the possible equilibrium
conditions. Collapse mechanism analyses are
determined by combining kinematics and statics.
Complex three-dimensional problems are analyzed
using the same methods. We present a series of
analysis tools that are fast and easy to use,
but at the same time rigorous and highly
