Based on the concept of the hybrid finite element (FE) analysis and statistical energy analysis (SEA), a new hybrid method is developed for the mid-frequency vibration of a system comprising rectangular thin plates. The wave propagation method based on symplectic analysis is used to describe the vibration of the deterministic plate component. By enforcing the displacement continuity and equilibrium of force at the connection interface, the dynamic coupling between the deterministic plate component and the statistical plate component described by SEA is established. Furthermore, the hybrid solution formulation for the mid-frequency vibration of the system built up by plates is proposed. The symplectic analytical wave describing the deterministic plate component eliminates the boundary condition limitation of the traditional analytical wave propagation method and overcomes the numerical instability of numerical wave propagation methods. Numerical examples compare results from the proposed method with those from the hybrid FE-SEA method and the Monte Carlo method. The comparison illustrates that the proposed method gives good predictions for the mid-frequency behavior of the system considered here with low computational time. In addition, a constant proportionality coefficient between the system coupling power and the energy difference between the plate components can be found, when external forces are applied at different locations on a line perpendicular to the wave propagation direction. Based on this finding, two fast solution techniques are developed for the energy response of the system, and are validated by numerical examples.
