The steady state response of a micropolar liquid saturated porous solid with an overlying elastic half space to a moving point load along the interface has been investigated. The transformed components of displacement, microrotation, force stress (in solid and liquid parts) and couple stress are obtained by using Fourier transformation. These components are then inverted and the results are obtained in the physical domain by applying a numerical inversion technique. The numerical results are depicted graphically for a particular model. Some particular results are also deduced from the present investigation and these deduced results are compared with the already established results by previous researchers.
