Abstract : Model tests were conducted to predict performance for the 60-ton amphibious cargo carrier LVTU-X-2 when equipped with Kort nozzles. Tests were made at two different displacements in deep water, in shallow water, and in waves. The superiority of Kort nozzle propulsion units over open-screw propellers was demonstrated. (Author)
