The problem of the elastic SH-wave diffraction from the semi-infinite interface defect in the rigid junction of the elastic layer and the half-space is solved. The defect is modeled by the impedance surface. The solution is obtained by the Wiener- Hopf method. The dependences of the scattered field on the structure parameters are presented in analytical form. Verifica¬tion of the obtained solution is presented.
