back and fill (backfill)


Explanation:
Trasdós is "back" according to Beigbeder, so the definition from EuroDicAutom would make sense

Spanish Term relleno del trasdós de un muro de contención
Reference CSIC
English Term backfill;
backfilling
Reference Road Gloss

Hope it helps.

a further note....


Explanation:
just to add a little info. to the interpretation offered by Davorka, which seems to make more sense than just the "back" I offered earlier:

"Batter" crosschecks in Beigbeder as "talud, inclinación".

Batter: A sloping part of a curtain wall. The sharp angle at the base
of all walls and towers along their exterior surface.

A typical design for a LOCK+LOAD "Stone" wall is three "stones" in height (4 ft.) stacked at a 1:10 batter. A wall of this configuration usually will not require a professional design or need additional soil reinforcement

So it probably does refer to the angle of inclination and the fill or backfill.

beveled backfill or beveled backfilling


Explanation:
Any inclined structure in the construction business is usually referred to as "beveled".
