Iwasaki [3] performed thermal and fluid analysis for gas turbine cooled vane and blade, and conducted to validate the accuracy of factors static pressure, heat transfer coefficient and film cooling effectiveness. Vickery [4] studied computation of gas turbine blade film cooling by using a two equation turbulence realizable k- є. The development of a new generation of high performance gas turbine engines requires gas turbines to be operated at very high inlet temperatures, which are much higher than the allowable metal temperatures. Consequently, this necessitates the need for advanced cooling techniques. Among the numerous cooling technologies, the film cooling technology has superior advantages and relatively. essential for the combustion systems of industrial gas-turbine plant required to operate continuously and reliably for 10ng periods. Air appears as the logical coolant for gas-turbine combustion systems, and its use is assumed in each of the wall-cooling methods which are discussed in this paper.

Gas-turbine engine cycles Idealized simple open-cycle gas-turbine engine. Most gas turbines operate on an open cycle in which air is taken from the atmosphere, compressed in a centrifugal or axial-flow compressor, and then fed into a combustion chamber. Here, fuel is added and burned at an essentially constant pressure with a portion of the air.

Abstract Cooling of gas turbine blades is a major consideration because they are subjected to high temperature working circumstances. Several methods have been optional for the cooling of blades and one such technique is to have radial holes to pass high velocity cooling air along the blade period. The forced convection. gas turbine engines Axial flow — air is compressed as it flows axially along the shaft (primary air); the rest cools combustion gases to reduce damage to turbine nozzles and blades (secondary air) 70% of air is used for cooling and centering flame Ignitor is used during start sequence. The gas turbine obtains its power by utilizing the energy of burnt gases and the air which is at high temperature and pressure by expanding through the several rings of fixed and moving blades. Since the turbine blades are working at high temperature and pressure .

Employing a fan as a cooling system for the generator at the end sides of its rotor is a practical method [Montazer Ghaem Gas Turbine Power Plant. Gas turbine generator manual, Iran, ]. In some cases, fracture of blades causes short circuit between rotor and stator and consequently generator explosion and huge financial loss.

Developments in turbine cooling technology play. Today gas turbines are being operated at a Turbine Inlet Temperature (TIT) as high as K. Since modern alloys can withstand up to about K, an efficient cooling of the turbine parts is required to protect the blades and vanes from thermal failure.

Gas turbine blades are cooled with the combination of a number of traditional cooling concepts. Modern gas turbines are operating at peak turbine inlet temperature well beyond the maximum endurable temperature of turbine blade material.

As a result, hot gas-contacting blades or vanes have to be cooled intensively by using various cooling technologies, such as film cooling and internal cooling, in order to increase the fatigue lifetime of the engine.

Ingestion of hot gas from the flowpath into the gaps between the rotor and stator can cause turbine components to overheat and lead to deterioration in component life.

To prevent this, modern gas turbines, both industrial and aerospace, use compressor bleed air to provide positive outflow through the rim seal (known as “purge” flow).materials used in the air construction (Bhaumik and Sujata, ).

Gas turbine blades are critical components in power plants which in the event of their failure the power plants will shut down. This case can cause long time current failure and economic loss.
