The acoustic boundary element method has been utilized primarily as a direct response analysis technique. Recently, methodologies have been published that enable the formulation of an eigenvalue problem from a boundary element model. These techniques, however, have been very slow due to the inefficient synthesis techniques used in solving the algebraic problems. In this paper, an alternative procedure is obtained which indirectly calculates the desired acoustic variables. This technique greatly enhances the calculation speed in setting up the eigenvalue problem and in determining the field pressures. A subspace iteration technique is outlined to solve the generalized unsymmetric eigenvalue problem. Examples are presented to show the accuracy of the method.
