By using the Mohr-Coulomb (MC) yield criterion, the method of stress characteristics (MOSC) has been employed to compute the bearing capacity factor Nγ in the presence of horizontal pseudo-static earthquake inertial forces for a rough strip footing over sloping ground surface. Two different types of failure mechanisms (M1 and M2) were employed. Due to rigorousness of the adopted failure mechanism, the present analysis overcomes the limitation of the existing MOSC formulation available in literature. The solutions in all the cases have also been determined based on the finite elements limit analysis (FELA). The results from the two different analyses, including the failure mechanisms, were found to be very close with each other.
