The detailed behavior of Macdonald's rigorous solution for a spherical sound diffraction by a half-plane are clarified by numerical calculation, and it is shown that all experimental results are in a very good agreement with the rigorous solution no matter where a sound source and an observation point are located, and that the approximate formula of the rigorous solution given accurately by Bowman and Senior has little approximation error.

Further a new simple approximate formula of the rigorous solution is presented and a practical method based on the new approximate formula is proposed for the prediction of the propagation of noise, by which the detailed peak-dip due to interference between several waves are not drawn in the sound pressure level distributions but only monotonous gradual variations are drawn.
