The null-field method is applied to two-dimensional problems on P- and SV-waves scattering on an elastic inclusion of non-classical shape with a thin interphase layer of low rigidity. The interaction between the inclusion and its surrounding is modeled by means of the effective conditions imposed on the contour of the inclusion. The amplitudes of the scattering waves are analyzed in a far-wave field.
