This report contains the engineering studies, design analyses and analytical investigations that were performed to identify, define and develop the design data, engineering details and operational requirements for a high performance marine reheat steam propulsion plant. Special studies were conducted in the following areas: high pressure, and intermediate pressure turbine construction, propulsion gear and attached auxiliaries, low pressure and astern turbine construction, turbine control and monitoring equipment, general propulsion plant arrangements, thermodynamics and acquisition cost estimates for major components. This report clearly indicates that a high performance reheat steam propulsion plant is technically feasible and economically justifiably. This report also highlights the need for additional design development of such components as boilers and feed pumps.
