The authors are to be commended for their efforts to present the joint factor of the seismic bearing capacity of shallow foundation with Coulomb failure mechanism using limit equilibrium method due to its simplicity. There are some appealing aspects of the authors’ bearing capacity analysis compared to the conventional approaches. However, the discussers would like to point out some considerations, which are fundamental for calculation of the ultimate bearing capacity of foundations.
