Studies on coupled structural acoustic problems within laminated composite enclosures are presented. Isoparametric quadratic boundary element formulation for the acoustic domain is coupled to the structural properties of the enclosure through mobility relations obtained from free vibration finite element analysis of the dry enclosure visualized as a folded plate with first order transverse shear deformation and rotary inertia. Velocity amplitudes and forcing frequency is specified over certain parts of the boundary. The rest is interactive boundary. Absorbent layers at the boundary are accommodated through admittance relation. Results show that impact of absorbent layers is frequency dependent while modifying structural damping has a better prospect.
