The purpose of this paper is to examine some possibilities for achieving high gas temperatures in the turbines of both open-cycle and closed-cycle plant and to show how some of the experience gained from research, development, and design of internally cooled blading for aero-engines can be applied to industrial power generation. For the short-term future, preferred schemes would seem to embrace the use of internal air cooling for open-cycle plant and refractory metals without cooling for closed-cycle nuclear plant.
