In this paper, a symmetric collocation boundary element method (SCBEM)/finite element method (FEM) coupling procedure is given and applied to a two-dimensional elastodynamic problem. The use of symmetry for the boundary element method not only saves memory storage but also enables the employment of efficient symmetric equation solvers. This is especially important for BEM/FEM coupling procedure. Compared with the symmetric Galerkin boundary element method (SGBEM) where double-space integration should be carried out, SCBEM is easier and faster.
