Development of mineral grouts for consolidation and strengthening of historical masonry was discussed in Ref. . The properties of the injection grout must counteract the elements that initiate the failure mechanism of multiple leaf historical masonry and lead to its collapse. This paper presents a macro-approach to model the structural behavior of three-leaf masonry. A global approach is used, based on the properties and the behavior of the external leafs, in combination with the properties and behavior of the central core of the threeleaf wall. Evaluation of the models is made by comparison with experimental data.
