A COGAS PROPULSION CYCLE WITH PEAK EFFICIENCY AT LOW POWER

This thesis is an engineering analysis of a proposed propulsion cycle for a destroyer type ship. It is organized and written in the same manner that an engineer would approach the problem. It starts with the requirements for a destroyer propulsion system and proceeds through a cycle selection process and individual component selection. At each step in the process the feasibility of each component is analyzed. After all the components have been selected, a heat balance is made to ensure that they all fit together. This is followed by a weight, volume, and reliability analysis. Much of the more detailed and voluminous material is included in appendicies to retain continuity in reading the main body.
