Residential masonry buildings are characterised by significantly low tensile strength and brittle behaviour. Such characteristics make them vulnerable to natural hazards, such as earthquakes and extreme hydrodynamic events (e.g. floods or tsunamis) (Kelman, 2002; Shoji et al., 2014; Korswagen et al., 2022). A large number of studies on the performance and resilience of masonry structures against earthquakes during the last decades, but less attention has been given to extreme hydrodynamic events. With the increased frequency and intensity of extreme hydrodynamic events under climate change conditions, there is a critical need to understand masonry structures' response to such events (Thompson et al., 2017; Otto et al., 2018).
