A fast far-field approximation (FAFFA), which is simple to use, is applied to groundwave propagation modeling from a nonpenetrable surface with both soft and hard boundaries. The results are validated against available reference models as well as compared to other numerical methods such as split step parabolic equation model and the method of moments.
