Abstract : This report contains the results of Standardization Trials conducted on USS ORTOLAN (ASR-22). The trials were run at a light displacement of 4,400 tons and a heavy displacement of 4,800 tons using both the automatic propulsion system control and the local control modes of operation. Measurements were made to determine shaft revolutions per minute, shaft horsepower, and propeller pitch over a range of ship speeds from 3 to 15.4 knots. Fuel Economy Trials were conducted at a displacement of 4,500 tons, and preliminary fuel consumption data are included in this report. (Author)
