A continuum model capable of modelling the inelastic behaviour of masonry is presented. The model includes the description of viscoelasticity, orthotropic damage and tensile crack localization. The theoretical framework is summarized. The model has been implemented in a FE package and validated through the analysis of a complex masonry construction and the simulation of experimental tests on shear walls.
