title = "Coherent wave propagation in solids containing spatially varying distribution of finite-size cracks",

abstract = "Multiple scattering results usually concern uniform distributions of scatterers. In this work, we evaluate the propagation of SH coherent waves through a non-uniform distribution of parallel flat cracks. The spatial variation of distribution is taken into account via replacing a heterogeneous medium by a stack of effective homogenous layers. Propagation in each layer is governed by the effective acoustic impedance and the effective wave number, which are derived by considering cracks as finite-size scatterers. On this basis, the reflection and transmission coefficients due to non-uniformly distributed scatterers are calculated by using the transfer matrix method. Effect of the distribution profiles is also investigated.",
