In the present paper, an analytical solution for the static deformation of a two dimensional model consisting of an infinite homogeneous isotropic elastic layer of uniform thickness placed over an irregular isotropic elastic half-space due to movement of a long tensile fault has been obtained. The rectangular shaped irregularity is assumed to be present in the lower half-space and assuming that the fault lies in the elastic layer at a finite depth say ’h’ to the upper surface of the layer. For numerical computation, the expressions of displacements and stresses are calculated by using Sneddon’s method and the effect of source depth and irregularity on the displacements and stresses has been investigated graphically.
