A plane wave travelling through an elastic incompressible medium with a plane boundary is considered. The motion is confined largely to the neighbourhood of the latter. In addition to elastic forces, gravitational ones are accounted for as well. The velocity of propagation is calculated applying a Lagrangian description of the problem.
