SNAME Philadelphia Section
Discusses Marine Applications
For Heavy Duty Gas Turbines
Principals shown above at the Philadelphia Section meet- ing, left to right: (seated) S.M. Kaplan, F.X. Critelli, A.
Caruvana, authors; J.M. Bollinger, coordinator; (stand- ing) H.T. McVey, Section vice chairman; T.J. Kavanagh, chairman; W.6. Neal Jr. and A.C. Brown, executive committee.
The subject of the February meeting of the
Philadelphia Section of The Society of Naval
Architects and Marine Engineers was heavy- duty marine gas turbines.
Francis X. Critelli, U.S. Department of
Commerce Maritime Administration, Saul M.
Kaplan, and Anthony Caruvana, General Elec- tric Company Gas Turbine Products Division, presented their paper titled "Heavy^Duty Gas
Turbine Development Project."
The paper presents a general overview of the joint General Electric Company and Mari- time Administration project to marinize the industrial regenerative gas turbine as a more economically and technically competitive form of propulsion power generation for ships of the U.S. merchant marine. The overview in- cludes the logic for the initiation of specific development efforts, present status of hard- ware-related developments, and future poten- tial for marine applications.
J.M. Ballinger, Sun Shipbuilding & Dry
Dock Co., coordinated the meeting for the local Section.
Discussers included G.C. Swensson, Sun
Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co.; R.B. McFadden,
J.J. Henry Co., Inc., and T. Radkevich, West- inghouse Electric Corporation.
