    Abstract. The article considers the provisions of the updated standards for earthquake-resistant construction of the Russian Federation and the Kyrgyz Republic in terms of taking into account the elastic characteristics of bases when calculating buildings and structures for seismic loads. The features of the practical application of new methods for determining the equivalent elastic stiffness of bases using data on the velocities of propagation of elastic waves in the soil layers of the construction site according to the standards of Kyrgyzstan are noted. There are also given alternative methods for determining the elastic properties of bases using data on their static stiffness. However, in widely used software packages of the LIRA family, the stiffness of the base is set not by the elastic modulus, but by the bed coefficients. As a result of the analysis of various models of the base, it is concluded that the method for determining the rigidity of the base using the coefficient of elastic uniform soil compression is currently the most correct for use in practical calculations for seismic loads in the LIRA-SAPR software package. Preliminary calculations of this coefficient for several construction sites have shown that this method of determining the elastic characteristics of the base makes it possible to quite accurately reach the values of the stiffness of soils calculated on the basis of experimental data on the velocities of propagation of elastic waves in them. Taking this into account, proposals are made aimed at modernizing the design norms (rules) in seismic regions and LIRA-SAPR software systems.
