Abstract: In this paper, antiplane response of an isosceles triangular hill to incident SH waves is studied based on the method of complex function and by using moving coordinate system. The standing wave function, which can satisfy the governing equation and boundary condition, is provided. Furthermore, numerical examples are presented; the influences of wave number and angle of the incident waves and the angle of the hillís peak on ground motion are discussed.

Keywords: scattering of SH-wave; isosceles triangular hill; moving coordinate system; complex function
