    First of all Ground motion itself is a seismic activity. Retrofitting of structures is strengthening of elements of structures. By "Soil failure" i think you mean failure of Foundation. If you mean failure of foundation yes it can be retrofitted. Hope this can solve your doubt!!!

    Does the soil failure occur only due to settlement? So that the structure can be retrofitted. Or any type of soil failure can be retrofitted?
