REVERSING DYNAMICS OF A GAS TURBINE SHIP WITH CONTROLLABLE-PITCH PROPELLER

A reversing dynamics and control simulation of a single screw controllable-pitch propeller frigate study ship driven by two General Electric LM2500 gas turbine engines is described. Results of the research effort include behind-the-hull model tests of a controllable-pitch propeller under all maneuvering conditions. Model test results with wake and thrust deduction fractions during maneuvering were used in the digital computer simulations to determine drive train and propeller loads and ship performance during crashback and crashahead maneuvers.
