An axial flow compressor is one in which the flow enters the compressor in an axial direction (parallel with the axis of rotation), and exits from the gas turbine, also in an axial direction. The axial-flow compressor compresses its working fluid by first accelerating the fluid and then diffusing it to obtain a pressure increase. In an axial flow compressor, air passes from one stage to the next, each stage raising the pressure slightly. The energy level of air or gas flowing through it is increased by the action of the rotor blades which exert a torque on the fluid which is supplied by an electric motor or a steam or a gas turbine. In this thesis, an axial flow compressor is designed and modeled in 3D modeling software Pro/Engineer. The present design has 30 blades, in this thesis it is replaced with 20 blades and 12 blades. The present used material is Chromium Steel; it is replaced with Titanium alloy and Nickel alloy. Structural analysis is done on the compressor models to verify the strength of the compressor. CFD analysis is done to verify the flow of air
