    Abstract:
    Analytical/numerical matching (ANM) is a general method that achieves high accuracy using low-resolution numerics by treating the most rapidly varying parts of a problem analytically, and separately, from the overall computational evaluation of the problem. As part of a broad research effort to apply ANM to structural-acoustic problems with structural discontinuities, the method is explored in the context of two-dimensional scattering from a cylindrical shell with discrete structural constraints. This application is an embodiment of a general approach to problems that require numerical approximation, and contain computationally taxing regions of rapid variation.
