WIND TUNNEL DEVELOPMENT OF A FUNNEL FOR SHIPS 63-64 FOR THE BROKEN HILL PROPRIETARY COMPANY LIMITED

The effectiveness of different configurations of funnel for SHIPS 63-64 was compared in a low speed wind tunnel investigation, at two engine power settings representing operations at light and full draft displacements. The recommended configuration combined an elliptic envelope, or funnel casing, with a horizontal crown at a height of 6 metres above the compass bridge deckhead, enclosing the main gas turbine exhaust pipe which extended 1-1/2 metres above the crown of the casing.
