The pressures on earth retaining structures that support backfills carrying moving loads have always been estimated by using methods that assume these loads to be applied in a static condition: the effect of these loads being repeated is not considered. The failure of some structures like bride abutments and basement walls, which support loads from moving vehicles, made it necessary to carry out these investigations.
