To investigate the influence of pore size effect on dynamic response of saturated soil foundation, a model for predicting the dynamic response of the ground surface of the saturated soil foundation under incident P wave and SV wave is proposed based on the nonlocal-Biot theory. The analytical solution is obtained using the wave function expansion method. The influence of pore size described by nonlocal parameter, input frequency, and the incident angle on the dynamic response of displacement and stress is discussed in detail. The results show that at low frequencies, the calculation results of the nonlocal-Biot theory are basically the same as those of the classical Biot theory. At high frequencies, the surface displacement and stress change significantly with nonlocal parameters, that is, at high frequencies, the effect of pore size on the surface response cannot be ignored. The influence of incident wave frequency on the ground-surface response is related to pore size, that is, the larger the pore size, the more significant the frequency effect. The influence of SV wave on the dynamic response of ground surface is larger than that of P wave. Besides, the total reflection phenomenon is observed at an incident angle of 45° for the incident of SV wave. The results obtained in this work can provide reference for studying the problem of wave propagation in half-space saturated soil foundation.
