 Summary:
 In 1807, Thomas Young published an article dealing with different structural forms of false arches. One of considered problems was the stability of two inclined platebandes leaning against each other. In the present paper, after a geometric formulation within equilibrium (static) approach, the problem is analytically treated, and the closedform expression of thrust line is derived. In addition, limit equilibrium state is analysed, and minimum thickness to length ratio as the function of the inclination angle is determined. Accordingly, Young’s solution turns out to be incorrect, since instead of 15, even 20 bricks are stable within the plate-bande inclined at 60 degrees.
