Soil in reality is considerably non-linear. That is why H.B.Seed [23] suggested special method to describe seismic response of horizontally-layered soil to the verticallypropagating free-field seismic waves by equivalent linear model. Parameters of this model are obtained in iterative calculations, as modules and damping in each layer are straindependent. This method is used in the famous SHAKE code [24]. Usually 7-8 iterations are enough
