ABSTRACT This paper supports a concerted effort towards validating an unstructured finite volume methodology for combined flow, thermal and stress analysis of turbine blades. In this part, CFD and conjugate heat transfer solutions are compared against measured surface pressure and heat transfer profiles on the C3X turbine. Sensitivities of the prediction to inlet turbulence levels and laminar-to-turbulent boundary layer transition are also presented.
