Love Waves Through Surface Layer in the Presence of a Finite Horizontal Rigid Barrier
J. Singh and P. Kadian

Abstract:
The propagation of Love waves in presence of a horizontal rigid barrier of finite length in the surface layer has been discussed. The transmitted waves have been obtained by using Wiener-Hopf technique and Fourier transform. The numerical computation has been done by assuming depth of barrier small as compared to the wavelength of the incident wave. It has been observed that the transmitted waves decrease as the distance from the barrier increases and die out after a very long time. The result of semi-infinite barrier has been obtained as a special case of this problem.
