The objective of this project is to investigate the mechanical and thermal loading and its effect in gas turbine blade with functionally graded materials (FGM). In the present work turbine blade was designed with layers of FGM materials. The blade has been designed and analyzed with multiple layers which gives better results on increasing the layers of the blade. The material property varies at each layer due to its own physical property. FGM is composed of Nickel and Zircon. And Carbon fiber is used to reduce the amplitude of vibration of the blade. FGM often used layer by layer, an attempt has been made to investigate the effect of temperature and induced stresses on the turbine blade. The mechanical properties off the blade are grated in the thickness direction according to a displacement and stress is obtained using Finite element method (FEM) and the thermal analysis investigate the direction of the temperature flow which is been developed due to thermal loading. An attempt is also made to suggest the best material for a turbine blade by comparing the results obtained for this materials to common material.
