Abstract: A mesocopic masonry model is presented in which joints are modelled by weak and strong discontinuities through the partition of unity property of finite element shape functions. A Drucker-Prager damage model describes joint degradation whereas the bricks remain linear elastic throughout the simulations. Analogies and differences amongst strong and weak discontinuity models are discussed, with special emphasis on kinematic description and implementation. Mesh sensitivity and performance of the presented models are illustrated by two-brick, three-point bending and shear wall tests.
