MASONRY 3D WALL
This example demonstrates the behavior of a 3d sheared wall. It actually is a masonry wall, with a concrete slab both at the top and at the bottom. You can find the Tochnog input file for this calculation in the test/youtube directory of your distribution. We use as constitutive models for the masonry: transverse isotropic elasticity, compression plasticity, tension nonlocal visco-plasticity, directional mohr-coulomb and tension plasticity using multi laminates and finally a Mazars damage. Numerical results are compared with an experiment from literature. The input file for this calculation is provided in your distribution.
