  • Abstract : Propagation of the love wave is studied along the irregular interface between the porous layer and the elastic half-space. The porous layer is assumed to be saturated by two immiscible fluids. The irregularity at the interface is considered in the form of a triangular pit embedded in the half-space. The elastic half-space is considered to be initially stressed under the effect of gravity. A complex transcendental and implicit relation between the frequency and the phase speed of the Love wave is derived in the form of a dispersion relation. A numerical study is conducted to observe the effect of material parameters and irregularity on the behavior of the Love wave. A significant impact of the triangular pit, porosity, and frequency is observed on the phase speed of the propagating Love wave and depicted graphically.
