abstract

The scattered field generated by normally incident body waves in a system of layers having small, but otherwise arbitrary, periodic deviations from plane parallel boundaries is shown to consist of superposed plane body and surfacetype waves. Results of numerical computations for two like half-spaces separated by a sinusoidally corrugated single layer, and by two layers, reveal the variation of the amplitude of the field with ratios of velocities, densities, impedances, and with those of depth of layers and wavelength of the boundary corrugations to the wavelength of the incident wave.
