The problem of the diffraction of time-harmonic axially symmetric acoustic waves by a perfectly rigid annular spherical cap is solved approximately by an integral equation technique. Formulas are derived for the far-field amplitude as well as the scattering cross section when the incident wave is a plane wave traveling along the polar axis. By taking appropriate limits, the solutions for the corresponding problems for an annular circular disk and a whole spherical cap are also presented.
