In laboratory-scale burner it has been observed that the acoustic excitations change the flame topology inducing asymmetry and oscillations. Hence, an acoustic and aeroacoustic study in non reactive condition is of primary importance during the design stage of a new burner in order to avoid the development of standing waves which can force the flame. So wall pressure fluctuations inside and outside of a novel slot burner have been studied experimentally and numerically for a broad range of geometrical parameters and mass flow rates. Wall pressure fluctuations have been measured through cavity-mounted microphones, providing uni- and multi-variate pressure statistics in both the time and frequency domains. Furthermore, since the onset of combustion-driven oscillations is always presaged by intermittent bursts of high amplitude, a wavelet-based conditional sampling procedure was applied to the database in order to detect coherent signatures embedded in the pressure time signals. Since for a particular case the coherent structures identified have a multi-scale signature, a wavelet-based decomposition technique was proposed as well to separate the contribution of the large- and small-scale flow structures to the pressure fluctuation field. As a main outcome of the activity no coupling between standing waves and velocity fluctuations was observed, but only well localized pressure signatures with shape strongly affected by the neighbouring flow physics.
