The goal of this paper is to discuss the derivation and behaviour of non-reflecting boundary conditions in the framework of accurate calculations of combustion instabilities. Therefore, it is explained for the first time, how to modify the coefficients of the discrete pressure correction equation and of the discrete conservation equations, in order to apply non-reflecting boundary conditions to a pressure based SIMPLE-Algorithm. The theory and practical implementation of the boundary conditions, which are based on Poinsot & Lele’s [1] formulation, will be explained for inflow and outflow boundaries. The method will be validated based upon test cases which are relevant to the simulation of gas turbine combustion chambers. Moreover, the accuracy of non-reflecting boundary conditions is assessed for cases where combustion leads to inhomogeneous temperature and species fields. The impact of the acoustic wave propagation speed on the reflectivity of the non-reflecting boundary conditions is analysed.
