Reflection and refraction from a vertical layer of surface SH waves radiated from a point source on a boundary free of tensions

With the help of the asymptotic boundary layer method, the transformation of an elastic SH-polarized surface wave of whispering gallery type (the so-called Love wave) is analyzed in the case where this wave passes many times through a vertical layer between two half-planes, Bibliography: 6 titles.
