U.S. NAVY CONTROLLABLE PITCH PROPELLER PROGRAMS
This paper describes the U.S. Navy Controllable Pitch Propeller Research and Development Program, of the late 1960's and early 1970's. It discusses the failure of the USS PATTERSON (FF 1061) and the USS BARBEY (FF 1088) research propellers and the redesign and test of the BARBEY propeller. It also discusses the SPRUANCE (DD 963) propeller land based test and sea trials. The application of the data obtained from the R&D program to DD 963, FFG 7 and future Navy designs is also discussed.
