Content SummaryMasonry bridges have been measured with geomatic techniques, including terrestial photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanning. The collapse mechanism and load has been calculated by using finite element analysis with unilateral contact and limit analysis estimation. From parametric analysis we can prove that the minimum size of the stone near to a hinge in the arising collapse mechanism has a decisive effect on the collapse load. Nevertheless, reinforcing this weak point, could lead to a different collapse mechanism.en
