WASTE HEAT RECOVERY UNIT DESIGN FOR GAS TURBINE PROPULSION SYSTEMS

A design model for a once-through waste heat recovery unit with a segmented fin-tube arrangement was developed along with a simple model of a combined gas and steam (COGAS) turbine propulsion system. These models were integrated and applied in a computer program written in FORTRAN IV for the IBM 360-67 computer. Waste heat recovery unit designs were produced and tested at off-design conditions. Using the space constraints and power requirements of a Navy destroyer-type ship, one design was selected and employed to make estimates of possible fuel savings to be realized through the application of a COGAS system.
