Friction coupled interfaces closed under pressure are considered as a possible source of nonlinearity for the ease of horizontally polarized shear waves. The distortion of a normally incident harmonic wave is calculated. From the Fourier transform, it is explicitly shown that only odd harmonics will be produced.
