HEAVY-DUTY MARINE GAS TURBINE PROJECT. TASK 5. REGENERATOR IMPROVEMENT VOLUME B (PRESSURE TUBE DESIGN)

This document describes a part of the work performed within Task 5, Regenerator Improvement of the Heavy-Duty Gas Turbine Development Program, or MARAD Project. The MARAD Project is an integrated effort to develop the heavy-duty gas turbine as an alternate competitive form of marine power generation. The costs of this program are shared equally by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Maritime Administration and the General Electric Company, Gas Turbine Products Division. This document represents one of two volumes of the Task 5 Final Report. It covers all design, development, analyses and component testing performed to develop the selected optimum regenerator design, the "Pressure Tube" concept. This design makes use of state-of-the-art developments in brazing and other manufacturing technology to enable conceptual attainments in size weight and cost reductions. Task efforts culminated in system-level testing of a 1/10-section, full-scale module of this design. Some additional effort is needed to transform the pressure tube regenerator from a concept to a production design.
