We prove the existence of a compact, finite dimensional, global attractor for a system of strongly coupled wave and plate equations with nonlinear dissipation and forces. This kind of models describes fluid-structure interactions. Though our main focus is on the composite system of two partial differential equations, the result achieved yields as well a new contribution to the asymptotic analysis of either (uncoupled) equation.
