    Abstract

    The article outlines the main findings and conclusions of the QUAKER research project and other related studies on the behaviour of foundations built on top of a rupturing dip-slip fault. Although emphasis is placed on normal faults, the derived conclusions are valid for reverse faults, as well. A key conclusion is that it is quite feasible to design a foundation to withstand an underneath rupturing fault. Practical design recommendations suitable for developing future Code requirements on the subject, are developed on the basis of the presented conclusions.
