A semi-infinite membrane, joined to a rigid surface at an arbitrary angle, supports incident unattenuated surface waves. A compressible fluid is contained within the two semi-infinite boundaries and the resultant reflected surface-wave amplitude and the scattered acoustic field is sought. A method of solution is presented for wedge angles (2p plus 1) pi /2q, p and q integers, and the exact solution is obtained for an acute angle of one quarter pi .
