In recent years, the boundary element method has shown to be an interesting alternative to the finite element method for modeling of viscous and thermal acoustic losses. Current implementations rely on finite-difference tangential pressure derivatives for the coupling of the fundamental equations, which can be a shortcoming of the method. This finite-difference coupling method is removed here and replaced by an extra set of tangential derivative boundary element equations. Increased stability and error reduction is demonstrated by numerical experiments.
