An experimental combustor, designated BKH, is operated at DLR Lampoldshausen to investigate high-frequency combustion instability phenomena. The combustor operates with liquid oxygen (LOx) and gaseous or liquid hydrogen propellants at supercritical conditions analogous to real rocket engines. An externally imposed acoustic disturbance interacts with a series of 5 coaxial injection elements in the center of the chamber. A combination of experimental analysis and numerical modeling is used to provide further insight and understanding of the BKH experiments. Optical data from the BKH experiments are analyzed to extract the response of the §ame at the excitation frequency. A new method for reconstructing the acoustic ¦eld inside the chamber from dynamic pressure sensor data is used to describe the evolution of the acoustic mode and the local disturbance in the §ame zone. An Unsteady Reynolds-Averaged Navier�Stokes (URANS) model of a single BKH injection element subjected to representative transverse acoustic velocity excitation has been computed using a specialized release of the DLR TAU code. The single-element model reproduces the retraction of the dense LOx core during transverse velocity excitation as observed experimentally. The model also provides further insight into the §attening and §apping of the §ame. The §apping is identi¦ed as the oxygen core being transported by the transverse acoustic velocity.
