The results of the first six months work on an integrated gas turbine power plant design study are presented. Phase 1 of the study resulted in the selection of the regenerative cycle, two shaft gas turbine design as best suited to marine propulsion service. This design was evaluated as offering the optimum balance between first cost, maintenance requirements, operating ease and fuel. In the transmission study, the possiblities for simplification and cost reduction offered by an axial flow reversing turbine are promising, and further study is recommended. Development work in fuel treatment, metallurgy, and design is also recommended.
