Abstract

Numerical simulations of acoustic scattering in the frequency domain based on hybrid methods coupling finite elements and boundary elements are the most suited for dealing with problems involving wave propagation in inhomogeneous media. Furthermore, it is necessary to resort to high performance computing to effectively solve the large size problems. However, the direct coupling yields a linear system with a matrix which is partly dense and partly sparse and thus not adapted to high performance computing. To avoid this difficulty, we present a new iterative method constructed from a non overlapping domain decomposition technique.
