Retaining walls and other surface civil structures only cracked and damaged to the extent of requiring rehabilitation when the time gradient of deformations will be sufficiently small, or when a differential subsidence rate will be less than 1cm/year.
These models account for the complex interplay of differential subsidence, sediment supply, basin physiography, climate, and sea-level changes, and emphasize the importance of three-dimensional models, which consider both along-dip and along-strike variations in structural style and deposition, over the two-dimensional ones.
