The paper presents an original method of solving the problem of uniformly distributed load action on a two-phase elastic half-plane with the use of a kinematic model. The kinematic model (Maltsev L.E.) of twophase medium is based on two new hypotheses according to which the stress and strain state of the two-phase body is described by a system of linear elliptic equations. These equations differ from the Lame equations of elasticity theory with two terms in each equation. The terms describe the
