This paper proposes a modified formulation of the singular boundary method (SBM) by introducing the combined Helmholtz integral equation formulation (CHIEF) and the self-regularization technique to exterior acoustics. In the SBM, the concept of the origin intensity factor (OIF) is introduced to avoid the singularities of the fundamental solutions. The SBM belongs to the meshless boundary collocation methods. The additional use of the CHIEF scheme and the self-regularization technique in the SBM guarantees the unique solution of the exterior acoustics accurately and efficiently. Consequently, by using the SBM coupled with the CHIEF scheme and the self-regularization technique, the accuracy of the numerical solution can be improved, especially near the corresponding internal characteristic frequencies. Several numerical examples of two-dimensional and three-dimensional benchmark examples about exterior acoustics are used to verify the effectiveness and accuracy of the proposed method. The proposed numerical results are compared with the analytical solutions and the solutions obtained by the other numerical methods.
