Hydrodynamic power transmission is a technique developed by H. Foettinger as early as 1910. Then, it was applied to high speed turbines which had to be geared down to relatively low propeller revolutions. Producing suitable teeth for mechanical gears presented a technological problem at that time. Potential applications today might be in extending the service life of propulsion plant. The manoeuvring capability, noise reduction and absorption of power shocks are other advantages of this new gear.
