This paper describes results of numerical analyses of reinforced lintels made of autoclaved aerated concrete built into unconfined walls and walls confined with reinforced concrete. The combination of the Menétrey–Willam elastic-plastic failure criterion (M-W-3) and the Rankine criterion was used for numerical analysis of masonry. The parameters were determined by laboratory tests. Rebars were modelled using the Huber–Mises–Hencky yield criterion. The numerical model included interface elements

The majority of parameters of interface elements were assumed from laboratory tests. Results of numerical analysis were compared with laboratory tests. Results of numerical analysis and experiments were compatible in the range of load-carrying capacity of models and the failure method.
