Abstract:

This report is a summary of the controllable pitch CP propeller blade attachment investigations which were conducted by the David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center subsequent to the failure of the CP propeller on the USS BARBEY FF-1088. Analysis of the BARBEY failures revealed that there was insufficient information available concerning design loads, structural response, and material selection for CP propeller hub components.
