In this work, an atmospheric model combustion chamber was characterized employing Laser Vibrometry, chemiluminescence and Particle Image Velocimetry. The test object was a variable geometry burner enclosed with a liner, with the flame optically accessible through four fused silica windows. In this burner with adjustable flame conditions the cavity of the atmospheric model combustion chamber was excited at a frequency around 200Hz. Resonant and non-resonant flame conditions were investigated and compared by laser vibrometer interferometry, schlieren visualization and OH*/CH* chemiluminescence. Additionally, the velocity field was recorded with Particle Image Velocimetry, while the aerodynamics of the burner plenum was analyzed with Computational Fluid Dynamics.
