It is difficult to accurately identify dispersion curves of Rayleigh wave for the foundation with obstacles. Displacement curve of time-domain of half-space foundation have been obtained with the finite element in the paper. Then time-domain curve have been transformed Rayleigh wave dispersion curves. Rayleigh wave dispersion curves have been analysed in half-space foundation with water drain pipes. The results show that, there are reflection waves at the receiving signals in front of the obstacles, there are no reflection waves behind the obstacles basically. The location and spacing of the sensor have a greater impact on the results. The results provide the reference for the recognition of dispersion curves and disposition patterns of the sensors.
