Diagonal cracking failure mode in masonry wall micro approach Abaqus

In this example , we simulate masonry wall (brick wall with mortar) under vertical load and horizontal displacement in Abaqus software

We use mortar to connect the bricks that mortar is defined as interaction property that interaction property consist of cohesive behavior and damage behavior

Actually the brick wall is modeled here using the Micro approach

In Micro approach , we define cohesive behavior along with damage and damage evolution, then we assign it to the interaction surfaces between bricks

In this example, we obtain failure mode in masonry wall

You observe failure modes in masonry walls in figure below

failure modes in masonry walls

You observe the comparison between abaqus results and real results in picture below

Comparison between abaqus results and real results

During the analysis by applying vertical load and horizontal displacement, diagonal cracking failure mode is appeared
