CASE HISTORIES OF THE SILENCING OF MARINE GAS TURBINES

The increased utilization of gas turbines as a means of propulsion and auxiliary power for marine applications has created a need to control the noise generated by this equipment. It is the purpose here to illustrate Industrial Acoustics Company's experience in the silencing of the gas turbines aboard ships. Specifically, references will be made to silencing achievements and applications aboard the ADMIRAL WM. M. CALLAGHAN Military Sea Transport Service (Roll-On/Roll-Off) Cargo Ship, the U.S. Coast Guard Ice Breaker POLAR STAR and the Canadian Navy DDH Class Helicopter Destroyers.
