Abstract:

Propulsion tests, including investigation of bollard pull capabilities, were conducted on Model 4952 representing the Utility Landing Craft, Assault LCUA FY 1963. The craft is propelled by two vertical axis propellers with an installed horsepower of 680. As a result of the poor propeller performance due to air drawing in the bollard pull astern tests, it is recommended that the stern lines be altered. Author
