An integrated marine steam turbine propulsion plant is described. The general concept of the plant is presented, followed by a view of the finally evolved plant, including: arrangement; boiler; turbine-gear-condenser unit; ship's service and auxiliary power; cargo handling power; fuel handling unit; and bilge and ballast, fire, fresh water, sanitary, and control air systems. Further consideration is given to: component preliminary performance characteristics; operating principles and sequence; research history and unqiue features; possible design variations; reliability, maintenance and manning; initial and operating costs; preliminary machinery arrangements; and end results required of a computer simulation of the power plant operation. An appendix gives drawings, sketches, and calculations.
