The wave forms for longitudinal waves reflected from a thin but uniform layer have been studied theoretically [1–5], on models [6–7], and in actual media [2, 4], Recently, theoretical studies have appeared which develop the wave forms for waves reflected from a periodic sequence of thin layers [8–9].
