The steady-state response for a coupled structure-acoustic-cavity systme has been investigated by numerical technique using a directly coupled finite element method(FEM) and Boundary Element Method(BEM) model. The Laplace tranformed matrix equations for the structure and the acoustic cavity are coupled directly satisfying the necessary equilibrium and compatibility conditions. The coupled FEM-BEM code is verified by comparing its prediction for an example with known analytical, numerical and experimental results. The example involves a coupled structure-acoustic-cavity system which is a box-type cavity with one end as experimentally excited pinned-pinned plate.
