The design and optimization of turbine blades subjected to high temperature flows require the prediction of aerodynamic and thermal flow characteristics. A computation of aerothermal viscous flow model has been developed suitable for the turbine blade design process. The computational time must be reduced to allow intensive use in an industrial framework. The physical model is based on a compressible boundary layer approach, and the turbulence is a one-equation model. Special attention has been paid to the influence of wall curvature on the turbulence modelling. Tests were performed on convex wall flows to validate the turbulence model. Turbine blade configurations were then computed. These tests include most difficulties that can be encountered in practice : laminar-turbulent transition, separation bubble, strong accelerations, shock wave. Satisfactory predictions of the wall heat transfer are observed.
