Abstract

The rise of small cracks in masonry arches is not a sign of incipient collapse, but a resource that assures plasticity to the structure. This paper highlights the importance of these cracks, retracing the Jacques Heyman's theory from the hypotesis on masonry material to the safe theorem and the geometrical factor of safety
