2-Volume Research Report Now Available On Fuel Efficient Vessel Operations

The Maritime Administration has announced the availability of a twovolume research report, "Micro- Computer Based Part Power Heat Balance Program for Commercial Marine Steam Turbine Propulsion Systems." Prepared by Seaworthy Systems of Essex, Conn., the program was developed to assist ship operators in fuel-efficient vessel operations. Because of the high cost of fuel, most companies already operate their vessels at slower-than-design speeds. However, through the use of this program, the propulsion system's performance can be tuned to ensure fuel efficient operation at these slower ship speeds.

The program was developed to operate on an IBM Personal Computer and can be used for all steam propelled vessels that are currently operating in the U.S.-flag fleet.

The report may be obtained from the National Technical Information Service, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, Va. 22161.

The order numbers and prices are as follows: Executive Summary, PB86-166956/AS, $9.95; User's Guide, PB86-166964/AS, $16.95.

The computer programs are available on diskettes from Seaworthy Systems. For information on how to order, Circle 40 on Reader Service Card
