Wave barriers are intended to mitigate vibration transmission in the soil. They include open and infilled trenches, sheet piles, etc. In this study, a two-dimensional finite difference element analysis was performed using FLAC-2D software as a research into the efficiency of open and infilled barriers exposed to dynamic loading with or without the presence of structures. In this contribution, two constitutive models are considered to study the soil response in the elastic and elastoplastic range with account for yield, failure and potential functions of soil plasticity. The results were assessed with account for reduced soil particle displacements on the ground surface exposed to impulse loading.The numerical analysis has proven that the results obtained by assigning elastic properties to the soil material fail to comply with the results obtained by analyzing the model having non-linear properties of soils. The presence of a structure produces a significantly larger effect onto the efficiency of barriers by reducing the surface wave energy.
