The aim of this work is to describe the response under lateral loading of a masonry building prototype analysed by means of FE linear and nonlinear modelling, comparing the theoretical results with experimental data. A technique for simulating crack development in masonry walls was employed and shear assessments of cross walls were finally carried out, comparing the stress-paths, evaluated in some elements, with the shear criterion of brickwork masonry.
