Reflection and transmission of plane waves between two different fluid saturated porous half spaces

The present study is concerned with the reflection and transmission of plane waves between two different fluid saturated porous half spaces when longitudinal and transversal waves impinge obliquely at the interface. Amplitude ratios of various reflected and transmitted waves are obtained. The variations of amplitude ratios with angle of incidence are depicted graphically. A particular case of reflection at the free surface in fluid saturated porous half spaces has been deduced and discussed. A special case of interest has also been deduced from the present investigation.
