CONTROLLABLE PITCH PROPELLERS IN THE DD-963; A STATUS REPORT

When the DD963 joins the fleet in 1974, she will be unlike any destroyer ever to fly the United States flag. As a vital part of the main propulsion plant of this ship, controllable pitch propellers were used in conjunction with marine gas turbines. This paper addresses the description and operation of the CP propellers, and various improvements in the "state of the art" of propeller design and manufacture which have been incorporated in the ship.
