The interaction of a longitudinal wave with a narrow cavity or slot that contains an inclusion is considered. A singular integral equation is derived for the scattered field and the integral equation is solved numerically by a Gauss-Chebyshev technique. The stress intensity at the ends of the slot is obtained as a function of frequency and inclusion stiffness for both a continuous and discrete element inclusion.
