The calculated load in a strut consists of two components: a load transferred from the retailed soil through the supporting wall, referred to as earth load, and, load induced by temperature change in the strut referred to as thermal load. Quantifying each of these load components is important for understanding the earth pressure acting on the support system and for estimating additional thermal loads that a strut experiences due to temperature change.
