Based on the classical limit theorems of upper and lower bounds, the numerical procedures developed at Newcastle utilise finite elements and non-linear programming and has proven to be both effective and efficient in solving many geotechnical stability problems. The bounding techniques have yet to be applied to the seismic stability of geotechnical structures. In this paper, both seismic bearing capacity of footings located near slopes and seismic earth pressures on retaining walls will be examined.
