In our paper, we proposed the structural analysis technique to assess the structural behavior of dry masonry in Angkor monument. From the result of the proposed techniques applied to Prasat Suor Prat, we verified the effectiveness of the technique by reflecting the structural characteristics of the masonry construction. The result of the structural analysis concluded that the masonry at four corners behaved as a continuum and was effective to secure the structural stability of the upper structure.
We will improve the discontinuum structural analysis to reflect the mechanism of the sub-soil and platform. By further developing the techniques, we will quantitate the damage level of Bayon at present and the future.
