Abstract

This paper reviews critically various implementation methods for coupling a mechanical finite element model to an infinite external acoustic domain discretized through boundary-element techniques. The associated physical problem is that of a three-dimensional structure submerged in an acoustic fluid, and impinged by a pressure shock wave.
