A new Schwarz method for nonlinear systems is presented, constituting the multiplicative variant of a straightforward additive scheme. Local convergence can be guaranteed under suitable assumptions. The scheme is applied to nonlinear acoustic-structure interaction problems. Numerical examples validate the theoretical results. Further improvements are discussed by means of introducing overlapping subdomains and employing an inexact strategy for the local solvers.
