Bricks and stone were the primary building materials employed by the Romans in the past, which made arches and vaults the main elements for covering as well as walls the fundamental support. Roman architecture uses concrete as its primary building material. Walls are strengthened with external buttresses, wooden tie beams at the start of vaults, and an increase in the inner pillars’ section in the direction of lateral thrusts.
After that, GROIN VAULTS take the place of BARREL VAULTS. These new covering systems clearly show the lateral walls’ rigidity by directly transmitting loads to the pillars through the combined action of TRANSVERSE RIBS and FORMERETS.
