To understand the implications of such choices, 16 finite element models were devised to investigate the impact of window shape, brick orientation, window size, and the presence of lintels. Responses were considered with respect to gravity loads and excavation-induced subsidence. Permutations of three common window shapes were modeled as representative of Georgian brick structures. The base model was benchmarked against large-scale experimental work using non-linear analysis. This study proves that a few simple assumptions can be used in reducing the complexity of building façades for computation without generating major errors in structural response prediction.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2013 Elsevier||Keywords:||Masonry; Finite element; Computational modeling; Subsidence; Settlement; Excavation; Brickwork; Windows; Terrestrial laser scanning; LiDAR||DOI:||10.1016/j.autcon.2012.11.004||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
