MARINE GAS TURBINES IN THE ROYAL NAVY 1976-1978

The paper covers development and operating experience of the Olympus TM3B, Tyne RM1A and RM1 engines in the Royal Navy over the period 1976 to 1978. Problem areas that have been identified and their solutions are discussed and lines of related research and development in the fields of combustion, materials, and engine health monitoring are indicated. The paper concludes that the decision of 10 years ago to adopt all gas turbine machinery for future surface warships is being thoroughly vindicated by experience.
