The development of sophisticated gas turbine hot section cooling methods appears to enhance the usefulness of the gas turbine as a marine propulsion plant. The state-of-the-art in cooling systems is reviewed and a qualitative assessment of selected methods is made. A computer model was employed to quantitatively compare the impact of film, transpiration and water cooling on gas turbine performance.
