This study numerically investigates the effect of spray-wall interactions on thermoacoustic instability prediction. The large-eddy simulations (LES)-based flame transfer function (FTF) and the convective time delay methods are used by combining the Helmholtz acoustic solver to predict a single spray flame under the so-called slip and film spray-wall conditions. It is found that considering more realistic film liquid and a wall surface interaction model achieves a more accurate phase lag in both of the time lag evaluations compared to the experimental results. Additionally, the results show that a new time delay exists between the liquid film fluctuation and the unsteady heat release, which explains the larger phase value in the film spray-wall condition than in the slip condition. Moreover, the prediction capability of the FTF framework and the convective time delay methodology in the linear regime is also presented. In general, the instability frequency differences predicted using the FTF framework under the film condition are less than 10 Hz compared with the experimental data. However, an underestimation of the numerical gain value leads to requiring a change in the forcing position and an improvement in the numerical models. Due to the ambiguous definition of the gain value in the convective time delay method, this approach leads to arbitrary and uncertain thermoacoustic instability predictions.
