SYNOPSIS

Structural stability analysis and monitoring of the historic brick-built “Moncanino Tower”.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Studio Masera Ingegneria has carried out a technical evaluation of the tower’s stability in relation to its geometric shape and the masonry’s mechanical parameters.

The work has been organized as follows:

  • geometrical and architectural evaluation;
  • structural monitoring of the tower;
  • damage assessment;
  • stability analysis and identification of the local and global failure mechanisms.

Studio Masera Ingegneria has carried out geological and geotechnical investigation, architectural evaluation, damage identification and life-time prediction, mechanical testing on the masonry specimens and interpretation data, structural monitoring of the tower’s vertical axis and tower modelling by means of the Finite Element Method (FEM).
