Measurements were made of wave form of transmitted sound pulses radiated into free air space from open end of a circular pipe, when a N-shaped acoustic shock wave propagating through the pipe is incident upon the open end. It was found that a reflected wave has a form which includes mainly lower frequency components of N-wave form, but the transmitted waves are made up of two sharp pulses. Calculations were made by the technique of the Fourier analysis for change of wave form of a pulse at a boundary whose acoustic impedance depends upon frequency. It was assumed that any component of N-wave form may behave independently of other components. Reasonable agreements between the calculated and the experimental results were obtained.
