A Proposed Gas-Turbine Propulsion Plant for Great Lakes Ore Carriers
ASME 1963 Aviation and Space, Hydraulic, and Gas Turbine Conference and Products Show
The present status of overage ships in the Great Lakes bulk carrying fleet, the problems of economic replacement, and the requirements for main propulsion and auxiliary machinery are delineated. With established requirements, the paper develops a gas-turbine machinery plant and compares it to the steam plant used in recent construction. The operating and environmental conditions existing on the Great Lakes are presented as influencing factors in the final plant selection.
