An important aspect of the successful design of a cooled turbine blade is trading off performance over a range of disciplines and over a range of conflicting criteria. This in turn implies a need for a speedy & integrated analysis system. The main novelties of the present work are to show: firstly, how the aero, thermal and material stress equations can be conveniently solved on a unified mesh; and secondly, how a very simple but fully integrated process can be constructed for conjugate analysis. As an example of the potential value of this approach, some indicative life predictions for a cooled turbine blade and a shrouded rotor blade will be presented.
