A method to couple acoustic linear problems is presented in this paper. It allows one to consider several acoustic subsystems, coupled through surfaces divided in elementary areas called patches. These subsystems have to be studied independently with any available method, in order to build a database of transfer functions called patch transfer functions, which are defined using mean values on patches, and rigid boundary conditions on the coupling area. A final assembly, using continuity relations, leads to a very quick resolution of the problem. The basic equations are developed, and the acoustic behavior of a cavity separated in two parts is presented, in order to show the ability of the method to study a strong-coupling case. Optimal meshing size of the coupling area is then discussed, some comparisons with experiments are shown, and finally a complex automotive industrial case is presented.
