Combustion devices are prone to combustion instabilities. They arise from a constructive coupling between the unsteady heat release rate of the flame and the resonant acoustic modes of the entire system. The occurence of such instabilities can pose a threat to both performance and integrity of combustion systems. Although these phenomena have been known for more than a century, avoiding their appearance in industrial engines is still challenging. The objective of this thesis is threefold: (1) study the dynamics of the resonant acoustic modes, (2) investigate the flame response of a liquid rocket engine under unstable conditions using Large Eddy Simulation(LES) and (3) derive, use and study Time Domain Impedance Boundary Conditions (TDIBCs), i.e. boundary conditions modeling complex acoustic impedances.
