Some Structural Studies of Exeter Cathedral

The results of recent studies on the masonry structure forming the western nave of Exeter Cathedral are presented. These have been generally derived from the point of view of a limit analysis based on the lower-bound theorem of plasticity. A numerical procedure is proposed which aims to generate feasible thrustlines from a sequence of conventional linear elastic finite element analyses which account for cracking. E.W.A. Maunder
