Lucchesi M., Padovani C., Pasquinelli G., Zani N. A numerical method for masonry vaults. Internal note CNUCE-B4-95-025, 1995.
 
 
Abstract
(English)
A method for studying masonry vaults with the aim of furnishing a useful computational tool both for evaluating the safety of masonry monuments and guiding the choice of restoration operations is presented. The maximum modulus eccentricities surface playing a role analogous to that of line of thrust for arches is defined; subsequently a spherical vault subjected to its own weight and a point load at the crown is analyzed and the maximum modulus eccentricities surface in correspondence of the collapse is explicitly calculated. Finally the baptistery of Volterra cathedral is studied, in particular the effectiveness of the existing reinforcement is checked.
