Nowadays many masonry arch bridges are in use on the roads in the Czech Republic. Average age of these bridges is about 70 years and many are rather in bad condition. With regard to its number it is impossible to replace these bridges with new structures. Therefore much attention is paid to development of new methods for load-bearing evaluation of masonry arch bridges. The important part of this research is investigation of time-dependent behavior of structural material — masonry — subjected to variable (fatigue) loading.
