In this work, a new set of uniform radiation boundary conditions for a half-space model are derived and applied to a fundamental problem in outdoor sound propagation. This original approach derived here relies upon a high-order family of local radiation boundary conditions related to plane wave reflection coefficients. Validity of the approximation is carried out by examining sound propagation above an impedance ground using a spectral finite element method. This is followed by computational results verified against an analytic solution for sound propagation over hard ground. Finally, the case of sound propagation above a grass-strip surrounded by rigid ground and a rigid-strip in a grassland environment with atmospheric profiles are studied.
