Presently, throughout the world, gas turbines are used to transform the energy within a fuel into some form of usable power. Though modern gas turbines based power plants have many advantages, they can pose threat to its surroundings. This project zeroes in on the boundary conditions that can trigger fire/explosion within gas turbine using ANSYS CFX. This arises from the possibility of ignition of leaking flammable gas and air mixture even the shutdown is imminent. Hence, this work investigates and analyses the simulation of combustion which implies pressure and temperature rise within full 16-stages compressor computationally. From the simulation results, there is an achievable pattern for the pressure and temperature profiles of fluid within the compressor with no likelihood of burning or explosion.
