Turbomachines are machines that use a rotor and fluid to transmit energy. Transferring from rotor to fluid (known as a compressor) and rotor to fluid (known as a turbine) are two of the most common methods of transferring energy in a turbomachine (called as a turbine). Turbomachines have been around for millennia, and they've evolved into a wide range of diverse designs. In 1913, Nikola Tesla invented a turbomachine that is still in use today. Its design is a little out of the ordinary compared to the current crop of turbomachine designs. It transfers energy from the fluid to the rotor by using the viscous shear force created when a fluid moves between two or more revolving discs. Tesla turbines, as a result, have been widely used in recent years. It may be used to generate electricity and to handle a variety of materials without causing damage to the equipment, among other things. With its viscous shear concept, the Tesla turbine can pump fluids with a broad range of viscosity more effectively. Several factors affect the performance of Tesla machines, including the width and number of discs, the distance between discs, the intake jet angle, the pressure at the inlet, the load, and the Reynolds and Mach numbers. The goal of this article is to provide a comprehensive overview of the last decades' worth of study on the topic at hand. The tesla turbine's design, simulation, and experimental processes are explained in a concise manner. For future study, this document lays out the findings of previous studies, as well as identifying the weaknesses that need to be addressed.
