This paper deals with a rational design method of contact pressure distribution and displacement at the bottom of faulting footings on slope. The faulting footings are well used for effective enlargement of development area, but the design of faulting footings is sometimes problematic. We have already published a rational design method of contact pressure distribution and displacement at the bottom of flat footings. We showed that this design method was applicable to the cases of faulting footings by carrying out some numerical simulations based on new design method for some concrete structures of faulting footings.
