The paper describes numerical simulation of the SASW test. Influences of the test setup and applied filtering criteria on the accuracy of the obtained field dispersion curve for various soil stratification conditions have been examined. The results presented indicate significant variations in the evaluated dispersion in cases of irregular soil profiles if the existing criteria are applied. A new filtering criteria has been proposed.
