BARGE PROPULSION-RUDDER PROPELLER OR CONVENTIONAL STERN GEAR?

The article evaluates the use of packaged propulsion/steering plants versus conventional arrangements and concludes that the hydrodynamic efficiency of the two types is comparable; the purchase cost of packaged plants are higher and installation cost lower than for conventional plants; and that the packaged rudder plant shows an advantage where the facilities of the barge builder are of a low standard. Order from NSFI as No. 21175.
