In the context of wave propagation in damaged (elastic) solids, an analytical approach is developed to study normal penetration of a longitudinal plane wave into a periodic array of rectangular defects. Reducing the problem to some integral equations holding over the base and height of the openings, a direct numerical method is applied to give a complete solution for various exact or approximated forms. Several figures show the peculiarities of the structure and lead to physical conclusions.
