    Abstract

    The gas turbine, similar to other prime movers, has had a long history. It is only within recent years, however, that the application of the gas turbine as a prime mover has been put on a practical basis. Even now there are only a few gas turbine units being used for the generation of electric power. In order to use the gas turbine economically it has been necessary to use it in high-temperature ranges. The development therefore of the gas turbine has been limited by the development of materials that can be used at high temperatures. Gas turbines are being designed to operate at initial temperatures as high as 1500 F.
