Masonry is a non-uniform multi-layer material, consisting of blocks of base material and mortar. Among the basic materials, we can distinguish:
- Solid blocks
- Hollow blocks
- Light-weight concrete blocks
- AAC blocks

Particular attention should also be paid to the dimensions of the blocks and the parameters of the joints.
The most important aspects of masonry modeling are available in the film material:
