DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS COVERING THE APPLICATION OF CONTROLLABLE PITCH PROPELLERS AND THRUSTERS IN 1000 FT' GREAT LAKES ORE CARRIERS

The application of controllable pitch propellers and thrusters, in Great Lakes Ore Carriers, or specifically, 1000 foot Great Lakes Ore Carriers, is not a new concept. The intent of this paper is to review the advantages of such application and to describe a particular installation and those design considerations which the propeller and thruster designer considered important in this application. A new concept of control, which may or may not be applicable to Great Lakes vessels, is also discussed.
