Fine-layered mountain mass with plane-parallel inclined layers is presented by anisotropic (transtropic) body with inclined plane of isotropy. A long horizontal cavity of arbitrary orientation and section shape is that medium; it is strengthened by an elastic anisotropic finishing. The interaction between the finishing and viscos-elastic rock medium is studied. The seismic-stress state of the “inishing-rock” system under aggregate action of long tension-compression and shear waves in conditions of generalized plane strains is investigated by using the quasistatic approach and complex potentials method. The procedure of research of seismic oscillations of a complex structure rock with multipurpose underground cavity using finite elements method and strong earthquake oscillograms is presented here.

Keywords: transtropic, parameters, viscos-elastic, coefficient, constants, seismic, underground, horizontal.
