Title: OPTIMIZATION IN MASONRY STRUCTURES

Abstract: This dissertation presents an insight in the Thrust Line Analysis, a method to solve compression-only vaulted structures. The methodology finds possible funicular solutions under some loading within distinct limits. Using equilibrium analysis, slicing technique and funicular polygon method, it delivers a graphical method, embracing the alike advantages of methods such as graphic statics, but contributing a viable extension to fully threedimensional problems. The proposed methodology is relevant for the analysis of vaulted historical surfaces, specifically in unreinforced masonry. This dissertation introduces the method and shows examples of applications in this field
