      A modified boundary element method(M-BEM) was proposed to calculate the engine vibration induced underwater near-field noise of a submerged structure.A singularity-decomposition scheme and a self-adaptive BEM quadrature algorithm were adopted to overcome Helmholtz hyper-singular and singular integral when calculating near-field sound pressure.A numerical case of a pulsating sphere was investigated to validate the M-BEM algorithm.Then M-BEM coupled with FEM were applied to predict underwater vehicle vibration-noise considering fluid-structure interaction effects.By visualization the near-field sound pressure distribution,high sound pressure area was localized.Finally,the underwater radiated sound power was calculated and the peak frequencies were identified.Reduction of the engine periodic-isolator's stiffness can effectively transfer the sound power of peak frequencies to band-spectrum and the vibration noise of the line spectrum is controlled.
