Abstract:  Conventional methods of solution of the Helmholtz integral equation consist in discretization of a radiating/scattering boundary on multiple boundary elements, assumption of a smooth distribution of the velocity potential on every element and transforming of the original problem to a system of linear algebraic equations. This method needs a large amount of time consuming calculations in the case when the radiating/scattering surface is large and the frequency of the acoustic field could not be considered as low or high and belongs to an “intermediate” frequency range. Analysis of these effects is practically impossible on a conventional PC due to the number of boundary elements, which are necessary to spread over the surface of the largescale structure to guarantee the numerical accuracy of solution. In the present paper the authors propose to use a novel method of solution of the Helmholtz integral equation, which is based on expansion of the integrands in double Fourier series. The main difficulty of realization of the Fourier series approach is that the kernels of this equation do not satisfy to the Dirichlet’s theorem and hence, could not be directly expanded into Fourier series. To overcome the abovementioned difficulty the authors represent the Helmholtz integral as sum of the integral with modified kernel, which satisfy the Dirichlet’s theorem and so could be expanded in the Fourier series, and an additional integral in the vicinity of the point of singularity. This approach helps to substantially reduce the volume of calculations, takes advantage of fast discrete Fourier transformations and achieves a substantial progress in solution of acoustic radiation and scattering problems. The typical example of scattering of an obliquely incident plane wave by a largescale structure composed by a cylinder with two hemispherical end caps is considered
