HYDRODYNAMIC CONSIDERATIONS IN THE DESIGN OF CONDENSER COOLING WATER SYSTEMS FOR LARGE SHIPS

The performance of intakes and outlets for main condenser cooling water systems are discussed. Water tunnel test results are given that show the relative performance of two intake types and the effect of grilles and yawed flow on them. Some boundary layer fences for improving intake performance are also described. The importance of choosing the best positions of the hull for intakes and outlets are discussed and a means of calculating the drag and power expenditure caused by cooling water systems is given. /AUTHOR/
