Turbine cooling, originally developed because of a shortage of heat-resistant alloys, is of interest for certain applications to permit operation of gas-turbine engines above uncooled temperatures. Specific power output would be increased, and in some cases specific fuel consumption decreased, depending on the engine type. Progress is reported on developments since 1952.
