Response of loose bonding on reflection and transmission of elastic waves at interface between elastic solid and micropolar porous cubic crystal

The problem of reflection and transmission of plane periodic waves incident on the interface between the loosely bonded elastic solid and micropolar porous cubic crystal half spaces is investigated. This is done by assuming that the interface behaves like a dislocation, which preserves the continuity of traction while allowing a finite amount of slip. Amplitude ratios of various reflected and transmitted waves have been depicted graphically. Some special cases of interest have been deduced from the present investigation.
