The problem of determining the response of a rigid strip footing bonded to an elastic half plane is considered. The footing is subjected to vertical, shear, and moment forces with harmonic time-dependence; the bond to the half plane is complete. Using the theory of singular integral equations the problem is reduced to the numerical solution of two Fredholm integral equations. The results presented permit the evaluation of approximate footing models where assumptions are made about the interface conditions.
