The linearly-elastic environment with homogeneous and isotropic layers is considered. It models an earth's crust. To the equations describing such layer, it is possible to apply double transformation Fourier and to receive the common decision. Such procedure has been lead and two problems are analyzed by this method. The first problem is about the concentrated force in the space consisting from two different half-spaces. In the second problem homogeneous half-space is considered on which the elastic layer with other modules lays. The concentrated force is enclosed to a surface of the layer.

Keywords: heterogeneity, Green’s function, double Fourier transformation.
