According to the principle of virtual work for a system of elastic layers, a semi-analytical scheme for constructing the finite-dimensional analog of the variational equation was developed based on the well-known analytical solution in the Fourier series for a single layer. The solution of a test problem shows that the constructed numerical procedure of mathematical modeling ensures fairly accurate calculations and highly effective computer-aided realization. It was demonstrated that the proposed semi-analytical scheme for constructing the finite-dimensional analog of the variational equation can be effectively used for the assessment of safety conditions of the potash salt development within the Upper Kama salt deposit.
