hai, im haidar (undergraduate-civil engineering from Malaysia)

Kindly please help me,

currently im working on my thesis which majorly focused on the dynamic analysis of masonry (Concrete Masonry Unit) multistorey building structure,

presently, im modelling the 3 story building (including ground floor) of masonry building with block size of (200x400mm) including 10mm thickness of mortar joint

(macro-modelling) using the ABAQUS program. However, im facing few issues and confusion regarding on masonry modelling: there any specific parameter/properties of interaction between the masonry blocks ?

2. what is the exact properties of masonry blocks need to be input in the ABAQUS program ( ex: young modulus....etc) ?

3. is there any specific guidance/tutorial regarding on macro modelling of masonry structure ?

*hereby i attached the minor part of my task

Dear Haidar,

I'm wondering whether you've already gained more information concerning the questions you posted in this thread. I would like to model a structure that's looking a bit like yours.

Kind Regards.
