It has been used as the construction material for several thousand years and still it is used. In the last decades, other materials like steel and concrete have been used frequently and thus replacing masonry as a structural Arch bridges have been built since ancient times due to easy accessibility of stone masonry, which is an appropriate material for sustaining compressive forces.

This book employs exaggerated deformation shapes to emphasise deformations, and thereby, to develop the most needed intuition of structural behaviour of buildings during earthquakes and its consequences on earthquake-resistant design.
