Better understanding and accurate representation of the vibrational field propagated through the ground is a major challenge in the industrial field. In particular, interactions between vibrating surface objects and elements buried in the soil are poorly understood. This article presents an analytical model of the vibrational field of a single-layered soil solicited at its surface by an non deformable piston and containing a passive flat plate. It offers an original approach to the problem,

Examples of numerical simulations are provided, and possible extensions to the model are briefly discussed to underline its versatility and its use in potential future studies.
