Longitudinal and transverse waves impinge obliquely at the interface. Amplitude ratios of various reflected and transmitted waves are obtained and computed numerically for a specific model and results obtained are depicted graphically with angle of incidence of incident waves. It is found that these amplitude ratios depend on angle of incidence of the incident wave, imperfect boundary and material properties of half-spaces. From the present study, a special case when fluid saturated porous half-space reduces to empty porous solid is also deduced and discussed graphically.http://jsm.iau-arak.ac.ir/article_544412_4c2fcec010db62e8269d85138925d39a.pdf
