In order to contribute to assessment of structural integrity of a gas turbine cooled-blade, numerical estimation of temperature distributions of the blade was conducted. Steady-state simulations by means of one-way coupling of a CFD calculation with thermal conduction analysis were developed and executed to estimate the temperature distributions with using a realistic blade model. Thermal protection schemes applied to the target blade analyzed are external surface film cooling, internal convective cooling and thermal barrier coating (TBC). Non-conformal multi-block meshes were adopted in the analyses for the purpose of reducing turnarounds required in the simulations of real blades, so as to cope with a compound domain including film-cooling holes of various directions. The CFD was applied to flow fields inside and outside of the blade in order to estimate thermal loads imposed on the blade. The temperature distribution of the blade was calculated with the thermal conduction analysis under the conditions based on the CFD calculation. The calculated temperature profiles are in reasonable agreement with local temperature which was estimated on the basis of micro-structural observations of an ex-service blade. The present calculations can also predict influence of lower internal cooling performance on the temperature distribution of the blade.
