A technical gas turbine combustor has been studied in detail with optical diagnostics for validation of Large-Eddy Simulations (LES). OH* chemiluminescence, OH laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) and particle image velocimetry (PIV) have been applied to stable and pulsating flames up to 8 bar. The combination of all results yielded a good insight into the combustion process with this type of burner and forms a data base which was used for the validation of complex numerical combustion simulations. Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) including radiation, convective cooling and air cooling were combined with a reduced chemical scheme that predicts NOx emissions. Good agreement of the calculated flame position and shape with experimental data was found.
