dc.description.abstractThe present work describes a shaking table experimental campaign specifically developed for the characterisation of the out-of-plane response of a full scale stone masonry facade. After the description of the specimen and the selection of the input motion presented in a companion paper (Part 1), the experimental campaign is illustrated and extensively described. The out-of-plane behaviour of the sacco masonry facade is presented in terms of displacements, velocities, and accelerations recorded during the shaking table tests. A one-sided rocking response of the facade was observed prior to collapse. The impacts were clearly identified in the acceleration records. The facade overturning occurred with the expected failure mode, as predicted in the design of the test. Finally, some conclusions are drawn regarding the observed behaviour and particular features of this type of stone masonry constructions, which may influence the global behaviour of the facade.
