Full 3D model of masonry arch bridges accounted for spandrel walls will be presented in the future. In comparison with simplified modelling approach, detailed modeling approach present more precise result. In comparison with simplified modelling approach, detailed modeling approach present more precise result. When using 3D mesoscale description incorporated with the domain partitioning approach, computational efficiency is preserved.
