The major objective of the present work is to study the thermal profile for a considered turbine Blade without Thermal Barrier Coating. Then, the thermal profile of the same blade with Thermal Barrier Coating is studied. A ceramic TBC coating like Yttria-stabilized Zirconia or SiC matrix composite is used as the coating for the turbine blade profile. Through extensive CFD analysis using NUMECA, the CFD tool used to generate and simulate the flow over the turbine blade, the objective is carried out. Flow behaviors over the two turbine blades and the data obtained post simulation are compared and the the effectiveness of the Thermal Barrier Coating is observed.
