The power-speed requirements of warships and the poor part load efficiency of simple cycle gas turbines has given rise to the design of many ship installations where two types of gas turbines are used. A large type for high speed, at full power, and a small one for cruise. It is common to mount two units of each type. This design results in a large amount of bulky and heavy ducting, much more voluminous and heavy than the gas turbines themselves.

The present paper outlines an investigation into a novel intercooled split-cycle with some deck mounted components. This reduces the requirement for internal ducts in the ships hull, essentially, to those needed by the cruise engine.

The engine performance has been predicted and a comparison is carried out between a traditional installation and the one investigated. An estimate has been carried out of the flow conditions of the duct to assess the change in losses for operation in the cruise and the full power condition. The new scheme appears to be promising.
