Ôno, Sakashita and Yamazaki presented a first order approximation formula for the propagation of shock waves in inhomogeneous medium by extending Chisnell's method. In this paper, the corrections to their formula are obtained taking into account the effects of the second-order reflected waves. The calculation is restricted to the case of strong shock limit and it is shown that the rate of growth of the shock strength obtained by the first approximation is little influenced, so far as the strong shock limit is concerned, by taking the effects of the second-order waves into consideration.
