In the last years the leading manufacturers enhanced the performance of heavy-duty gas turbines rapidly. With the increasing amount of cooling air passing the internal air system, a rising amount of air borne particles are transported to the film cooling holes at the turbine blade surface. Due to the size, these holes are critical for blockage. Experience with gas turbines during operation showed a complex interaction of cooling air under different flow conditions and its particle load. In this paper the results of a new Lagrange-Tracking simulation algorithm based on 3D-Navier-Stokes flow solution are shown for the first time. Compared to previously shown simulations the algorithm is enhanced by models, taking additional, relevant physical effects into account. The new simulation results are compared to experimental results and former simulations.
