The gas turbine is established as a Naval Marine propulsion power unit and the number of ships at sea using the high power gas turbine in association with diesel engines, smaller gas turbine or steam turbine is increasing. Gear unit designs have been evolved to meet the conditions dictated by the engine/propeller shaft positions and the requirements of ship designers. The involvement of the gear designer in the analysis of shaft vibration characteristics is accepted, and the advantage of costly shore testing has been proven in that design modifications could be difficult and expensive to carry out during trials.
