Conjugate heat transfer is a key feature of modern gas turbine, as cooling technology is widely applied to improve the turbine inlet temperature for high efficiency. Impact of conjugate heat transfer on heat loads and thermodynamic efficiency is a key issue in gas turbine design. This paper presented a through flow calculation method to predict the impact of heat transfer on the design process of a convective cooled turbine. A cooling model was applied in the through flow calculations to predict the coolant requirements, as well as a one-dimensional mixing model to evaluate some key parameters such as pressure losses, deviation angles and velocity triangles because of the injection cooling air. Numerical simulations were performed for verification of the method and investigation on conjugate heat transfer within the blades. By comparing these two calculations, it is shown that the through flow calculation method is a useful tool for the blade design of convective cooled turbines because of its simplicity and flexibility.
