Induced seismicity in the Groningen region of the Netherlands has led to a large scale testing campaign on Calcium silicate element masonry structures at Delft University of Technology. An overview of the finite element analysis (FEA) using an implicit solver, on the full scale quasi-static cyclic pushover test performed on a two-storey calcium sili-cate element masonry assemblage is presented in this paper. Tests have been performed in the experimental campaign at material, component, and structural level, of which the ma-terial tests like bond wrench tests, compression tests and shear tests are also briefed in this paper.
