This paper is devoted to the application of unilateral models to the stress analysis of masonry structures. Some 2d applications of what we can call the simplified masonry-like model for masonry, are discussed and studied. The results here presented demonstrate that the unilateral model for masonry can be a useful tool for modeling real masonry structures. The main technique here employed for applying the No-Tension model to structures is the systematic use of singular stress and strain fields within the frame set by the theorems of Limit Analysis. A number of simple examples is discussed to illustrate the method.
