In a companion paper, new tapered configurations are proposed of slender RC structural walls with and without enlarged boundary elements at the wall-footing junction region. On the basis of identified parametric limits and the wall response in linear-elastic finite-element analyses, a stepwise seismic design procedure is proposed of tapered integrated wall-footing systems with soil or rock anchors at the bottom. This incorporates a capacity design of the plastic hinge region above the tapered portion and an elastic design of the tapered portion. The location of the region of seismic damage and energy dissipation in the wall is controlled by proportioning of the tapered wall-footing as per the new design procedure. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.
