Abstract

Prediction of the level of service load above which accumulative damage occurs is a key priority for the
masonry arch bridge owners. Limited investigations have been undertaken previously on the high-cycle
fatigue behaviour of brick masonry in order to establish the link between the fatigue phenomenon in
brick masonry and the serviceability limit state for masonry arch bridges. But to date there are still many
uncertainties of the research published regarding predicting the fatigue performance. This paper provides
a critical review on the high-cycle fatigue behaviour of brick masonry. Current state of the knowledge and
areas requiring further research are also presented.
