The finite strip method, widely employed in structural mechanics, is extended to solve acoustic and vibroacoustic problems. The acoustic part of the formulation, including how to handle the most typical acoustic boundary con- ditions and the fluid structure interaction, is presented. Several realistic prob- lems where the three-dimensional domain of interest has extrusion symmetry are solved. These examples illustrate the advantages of the method: it has smaller computational costs than the finite element method and consequently the analysed frequency range can be increased.
