In order to directly solve the horizontal dynamic response of a single pile under the condition that the shear modulus of the soil around the pile varies linearly with the depth, a method for solving the horizontal dynamic response of piles in nonhomogenous foundation is proposed based on the layered generalized Gibson foundation and the Adomian decomposition method. Compared with the initial parameter method and the transfer matrix method, the proposed method does not need to discretize the nonhomogeneous foundation. Compared with the numerical method, it has the advantages of low computational cost, high accuracy, and fast convergence speed. The correctness and rationality of this method are verified by comparing it with the calculation results of the layered method, the analytical method of homogeneous foundation, and the numerical method. The influence of boundary conditions on the pile bottom, soil parameters, and pile slenderness on the horizontal dynamic response of the pile is investigated. The result show that in nonhomogeneous foundation, the pile-soil elastic modulus ratio is an important factor affecting the horizontal dynamic response of pile. As the shear modulus of soil increases, the amplitude of horizontal displacement of the pile decreases, and the distribution tends to be gentle. In addition, compared with other parameters, Poisson’s ratio and damping ratio of soil have less influence on the horizontal dynamic response of pile.
