Abstract : Standardization, tactical circle, acceleration and deceleration, lateral stability, horizontal overshoot, several towed array maneuvers, and full power trials were conducted on USNS HAYES (T-AG 195) to evaluate the performance of the ship. The results of the standardization trials are the subject of this report. Standardization trials were conducted off the coast of La Jolla, CA from 23 through 25 October 1992 in sea states 0-1. Standardization results showed that HAYES achieved maximum powering conditions of an average shaft speed of 121.3 r/min, a total shaft torque of 108,800 lb-ft (147,500 N-m) and a total shaft horsepower of 2,510 (1,870 kW) with a speed of 12.36 kn at a displacement of 3,898 tons (3,960 t) and trim by stem of 12 in. (30.5 cm).... USNS HAYES (T- AG 195), Ship's Speed, Standardization Trial, Shaft Power, Shaft Torque.
