Abstract : A boiler efficiency computer was developed as a part of a data recording system and tested and evaluated relative to design, performance, and reliability. The development included: investigation into existing commercially available systems and components which could be integrated into a whole unit, fabrication of the evolved system, calibration of the system, testing of the system under simulated conditions, and comparison with calculated data on an actual test. Results indicated that the system developed was compact, rugged, and within accuracy specifications, and will provide satisfactory information concerning heat losses and boiler efficiency during use aboard ship.
