HIGH PERFORMANCE REHEAT MARINE STEAM PROPULSION PLANT. PHASE

I

This report discusses heat balances for full power and 70% power which will be compared to balances to be done in phase 2 to evaluate gains due to cycle changes. Available information was assembled on high temperature materials. Parametric studies were made of stresses in wheels and buckets taking into account centrifugal effects and steam forces. Preliminary studies were made on machinery arrangements of HP and IP turbine(s). Calculations were made of thermal performance to determine influence of number of stages, diameter, rotational speed, etc. on the design of HP and IP turbines. Auxiliary turbine designs were roughed out.
