The two-dimensional, finite-difference boundary-layer code, STAN5, is the primary tool used at the NASA-Lewis Research Center for predicting turbine blade gas-side heat-transfer coefficients. A number of modifications have been made to the program to enhance its usefulness for these calculations. Experience in using STAN5 has identified some problems in the program that can be treated through program input, without modifying the program. These include the presence of a small separation bubble near the leading edge, and the effect of full-coverage film cooling on transition to turbulence. Some of the techniques used to treat these problems are described.
