We discuss development of a numerical algorithm, and solver capable of performing large-eddy simulation (LES) in geometries as complex as the combustor of a gas-turbine engine. The algorithm is developed for unstructured grids, is non-dissipative, yet robust at high Reynolds numbers on highly skewed grids. Results from validation in simple geometries is shown along with simulation results in the exceedingly complex geometry of a Pratt & Whitney gas turbine combustor.
