The identification of scattering matrix method is conducted using high fidelity Large Eddy Simulations. From a series of LES results, the scattering matrices of a plain orifice and a lean premixed nozzle are evaluated and compared with the corresponding experimental data. It is confirmed that LES simulations are capable of predicting the acoustic scattering matrix, with some limitations. The magnitude of the scattering matrices imply that the acoustic energy transfer across the orifice and mixer agree fairly well with that of the scattering matrices from the experimental data. Moreover, the phase angle of transmission/reflection elements for the traveling wave in the upstream region consistently follows the experimental trends. The phase angle of transmission/reflection elements for traveling waves in the downstream region, however, shows a significant discrepancy with the experimental measurements. For the direct use of the LES-based scattering matrix method, the accuracy of determination of the phase angle of reflection/transmission of the traveling wave in the downstream region needs further study.
