This paper examines factors that influence the future development of ship propulsion systems. Machinery for the coming decade will hardly be altered to any great degree. Politics surrounding gas and oil prices and the availability of liquid fuel will influence development. Diesel engines will certainly remain the most common type of system but will probably have to make way for steam turbines, both liquid fuel and nuclear powered. Gas turbines will remain an isolated choice for the special case. Order from BSRA as No. 53,427.
