In the present paper, the problem of the sliding collapse of vaults is examined from a theoretical and experimental point of view. A comparison between the theoretical results and the experimental tests on physical marble models shows that sliding depends both on the friction angle and on the geometry of the vault, whereas it does not depend on the weight of the material. For different structures, the minimum value of the friction angle and the thrust at the crown section corresponding to this limit condition is evaluated.

Abstract

In the present paper, the problem of the sliding collapse of vaults is examined from a theoretical and experimental point of view. A comparison between the theoretical results and the experimental tests on physical marble models shows that sliding depends both on the friction angle and on the geometry of the vault, whereas it does not depend on the weight of the material. For different structures, the minimum value of the friction angle and the thrust at the crown section corresponding to this limit condition is evaluated.
