A plane sound wave is incident at an angle θ upon an infinite array of rigid plates, equally spaced and lying along the y-axis, where (x, y) are two-dimensional Cartesian coordinates. The boundary value problem is formulated into a matrix Wiener–Hopf equation whose kernel is, when the plates and interstices are of equal length, decomposable into two factors which commute and have algebraic behaviour at infinity. A closed form analytical solution is then obtained following the usual Wiener–Hopf procedure and numerical results are given for various angles of incidence, as well as different spacings.
