A solution is presented for the dynamic response of a periodically laminated half plane that consists of alternating layers of two different materials and is subjected to a moving load. The laminations are parallel to the surface of the half plane, and the velocity of the load is steady and supersonic. An effective stiffness theory developed by Sun, Achenbach, and Herrmann is used to model the layered material, and the formal solution is obtained with the aid of Laplace transforms. A far-field solution is constructed with the head-of-the-pulse procedure, and several numerical examples are presented.
