Micro-polar and second order homogenization periodic elastic masonry are implemented for include geometric and material length scales in the constitutive equation. By the solution of the RVE equilibrium problems with properly prescribed boundary conditions the orthotropic elastic moduli of the higher order continua are obtained on the basis on the enhanced Hill-Mandel condition. A shear layer problem is analysed and the results from heterogeneous models are compared with those ones by the homogenization procedures; the second-order homogenization appears to provide better results in comparison to the micro-polar homogenization.
