Abstract: The study considers the basis of the new method of definition of the stress-strain state of masonry including technological factors of its research. Shortcomings of the existing masonry design codes in Russia and worldwide were considered and method of determining the irregularity of mortar consistency is shown. The proposed algorithms allow to determine the stress-strain state of the masonry of arbitrary geometry, strength and geometric properties of masonry materials.
