title = "Geometric and material property scaling factors for a thin-tile masonry dome",

abstract = "Experimental testing of full-scale structures is often not possible or practical.Therefore the ability to construct scaled experiments and extract the results to full sized structures is extremely useful especially in the case of historic structures where destructive testing is not feasible. However, in order to extract the results, scaling factors for both geometry and material properties must be known. In this study, geometric and material property scaling factors for a thin-tile masonry dome are developed using parametric studies on a validated finite element model of a laboratory constructed half-scale physical model. The scaling factors are then used to predict the natural frequency of the full size structure which is then verified using experimental modal analysis data. Using the scaling factors developed in this study it is possible to accurately predict the natural frequency of one structure using experimental data acquired from a geometrically similar structure.",
