GAS TURBINES IN THE U.S. NAVY: ANALYSIS OF AN INNOVATION AND ITS FUTURE PROSPECTS AS VIEWED BY A SHIP DESIGNER

The U.S. Navy has not come to make a bold decision such as the Royal Navy made in 1967 - to go 100% gas turbine propulsion and why. This projection is based upon the governing ship design parameters and the rationale derived from the synthesis of the "trade-offs" of recent designs, some for which the outcome was gas turbines (DD963, PS, SCS, DG/AEGIS) and some for which the outcome was not gas turbines (LHA & AO).
