There are a number of civil engineering structures, for which
circular and ring footings are often employed. The bearing capacity
was computed for a rough circular and ring footings by using the
method of characteristics. Rapid urbanization coupled with scarcity
of land force several structures to come up ever closer to each
other, which may sometime cause severe damage to the structures and
therefore, a need is felt to devise simplified methods to capture
the effect of footing interference. The ultimate bearing capacity
of two interfering strip footings was obtained by using the method
of characteristics and the upper bound limit analysis. The
determination of the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow to deep
footings must incorporate the shearing resistance of the soil mass
above the footing level otherwise the predicted failure load
becomes conservative. By incorporating the shear strength of the
soil mass above the footing level, it was intended to perform an
analysis so as to compute the bearing capacity factors for a rough
strip footing placed on a sloping ground surface at different
depths under seismic condition by using the upper bound limit
