Two-parametric asymptotic analysis of the equilibrium of an elastic half-space coated by a thin soft layer is developed. The initial scaling is motivated by the exact solution of the plane problem for a vertical harmonic load. It is established that the Winkler-Fuss hypothesis is valid only for a sufficiently high contrast in the stiffnesses of the layer and the half-space. As an alternative, a uniformly valid non-local approximation is proposed. Higher-order corrections to the Winkler-Fuss formulation, such as the Pasternak model, are also studied.
