The Marine Gas Turbine for the 1990's and Beyond 871378

This paper discusses the technology, components and systems incorporated in the design of the LM1600 I/CR marine gas turbine propulsion system as well as describing some of the novel and imaginative ways that the highly acclaimed F404 fighter aircraft engine has been modified and adapted to provide the nucleus for this sophisticated marine propulsion system. Specifically, the modifications to the compressors, the high and low pressure turbines and the power turbine design characteristics are described. The proven materials technology from the highly successful LM2500 marine gas turbine has been applied to this engine as well.
