How to correctly calculate the brickwork stresses and deformations?

      Good afternoon!

      Please tell me how to correctly calculate the masonry deformations? I made a calculation of masonry and individual bricks, but both models behave like plastic materials, similar to metal, when deformed

      You have defined both the brick and mortar as elastic materials which will not represent the true behavior of concrete. Please have a look at the Drucker-Prager Concrete Model and the Menetrey-Willam material model under the Geomechanics class of Materials. Also check https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/1685/concrete-modeling-questions.
      Regards Ishan.
