Abstract: Ramjet flows are very sensitive to combustion instabilities that are difficult to predict using numerical simulations. This paper describes compressible large eddy simulation on unstructured grids used to investigate nonreacting and reacting flows in a simplified twin-inlet ramjet combustor. The reacting flow is compared to experimental results published by ONERA in terms of mean fields. Simulations show a specific flow topology controlled by the impingement of the two air jets issuing from the twin air inlet…
