The cited method predicts wall temperatures generally within an accuracy of ± 6 percent, The biggest single factor governing the wall temperature is shown to be the hot gas temperature. Other factors discussed are the effects of changes in inlet temperature, fuel types, the geometry of the film cooling devices and manufacturing tolerances. Empirical formulas are given for the prediction of effective temperatures within the various combustor zones. Some comparisons are made between predictions and measurements of wall temperatures over a range of operating conditions.
