Masonry is a heterogeneous anisotropic continuum. In particular, the inhomogeneity is due to the different mechanical properties of its constituents. Anisotropy is due to the different masonry patterns, that can be obtained by variation of geometry, nature and arrangement of mortar and brick. The behaviour of masonry is very complex and highly non-linear due to the behaviour of its constituents, which are quasi-brittle in nature and have a large difference in their stiffness. The structural response of such a composite material derives from the complex interaction between its constituents.
