The physics behind acoustic liners attenuation in the presence of flow and high sound pressure level is still a matter of debate. Similarly, discrepancies between experimental results and numerical data have been linked to the boundary conditions used to model the liner and boundary layer effects, and the reasons behind these discrepancies are still not clear. In this sense, to avoid the limitations of the boundary condition approach, fully resolved high fidelity computation models of the liner and its dissipation mechanisms may be an important tool to improve understanding. The present study carries out a numerical analysis using a code based on the Lattice-Boltzmann method, and special focus is given on replicating the results from different experimental techniques used to evaluate the liner impedance: the in-situ method and an impedance eduction method based on the mode-matching technique. The study is conducted with a model including a single degree of freedom liner with multiple cavities based on a real geometry. The model considers high sound pressure level, grazing plane acoustic waves without flow in order to replicate the experimental setup. A mesh convergence analysis is performed, and the liner impedance obtained numerically is compared with experimental results from the in-situ method and the impedance eduction technique. The numerical pressure and velocity fields are also analyzed in detail to better understand the damping mechanisms and physics involved.
