The internal and external fluid acoustics interacting with structures are studied by considering compressibility in the fluid models. Various approximate modeling and formulation issues are studied, with application examples to understand the coupling phenomena. The problem of large wave motions interacting with floating structures is formulated by coupling the Eulerian equations of incompressible fluids and the Lagrangian description of structural dynamics equations.
