Among different structural systems arches are the most efficient forms which are mainly used in buildings and bridges. The behavior of arches usually depends on characteristics based on geometry of the structures, viz. span, thickness, rise and width, types of loading, materials used for the construction, and support conditions. This paper deals with the experimental and analytical behavior of unstrengthened brick masonry arch having dimensions of span of 1m, rise of 0.4m,1.2m and 1.5m, rise of 0.5m respectively. Scaled modeled of masonry arch were subjected to point load and is tested under displacement control upto failure and then arches were analyzed by using ANSYS.
