Unreinforced masonry churches in New Zealand, similarly to everywhere else in the word have proven to be highly vulnerable to earthquakes, because of their particular construction features. The Canterbury (New Zealand) earthquake sequence, 2010-2011 caused an invaluable loss of local architectural heritage and of churches, as regrettably, some of them were demolished instead of being repaired. It is critical for New Zealand to advance the data collection, research and understanding pertaining to the seismic performance and protection of church buildings, with the aim to:

(Quake CoRE, 2016)One of the most critical deficiencies of historic clay brick unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings  is the out-of-plane failure mechanism induced by lateral earthquake loads [2-4]. This failure mechanism is inhibited ...
