In this paper, analog solutions are presented for the response of a circular footing resting on an elastic half-space with uniform and parabolic contact pressure distributions and subjected to frequency dependent and frequency independent excitations. In addition, an analog solution to a rigid circular footing subjected to frequency dependent excitation is also presented. The results have been compared with the rigorous solution of Sung and the agreement is found to be good.
