The present study aims to investigate Rayleigh wave propagation in an isotropic sandy layer overlying an isotropic sandy semi-infinite medium, with interface considered to be imperfect (slide contact and dislocation like model). Expressions for displacement components are obtained using the variable separation method. The dispersion frequency equation for the Rayleigh wave propagating in sandy media is derived using suitable boundary conditions. Particular cases, such as when the interface is in smooth contact and when sandy media are replaced by elastic media, are also discussed. Using MATLAB software, the effects of the imperfectness parameter (slide contact and dislocation like model) and sandy parameter on the Rayleigh waves’ phase velocity are investigated and compared with the already obtained results of the dislocation like model. The present study may find useful applications in geophysics, civil engineering and soil mechanics.
