In connection with ground shock propagation in case of nuclear bursts, steady state displacements and stresses produced in 2 layered elastic half plane by uniform superseismic motion of constant concentrated normal line load along surface of half plane are determined in terms of dilatational and distortional potentials; systematic addition of solutions for multiple reflections and refractions of plane elastic waves from plane boundaries.
