Abstract

Utilising a numerical index, developed to classify the condition of historic masonry buildings in the Umbrian region of Italy, a clear description of the typological and morphological characteristics of historic masonry structures in the North East of England, is presented in this paper. This description facilitates the understanding of the mechanical behavior of historic masonry typologies and assists in determining the most suitable analysis and design strategy to inform approaches to the conservation and preservation of historic buildings. This paper describes the method adopted and applies the approach to wall sections selected throughout the county of Northumberland. On the basis of this preliminary investigation, a comprehensive research program has been recently carried out at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle.
