Historically, two of the principal hindrances to the design of effective marine gas turbine inlet systems have been the inability to define the marine environment and to identify the influence of this environment on the inlet system configuration. This paper summarizes the work done by the U.S. Navy to qualitatively and quantitatively define the composition of the marine atmosphere and identify inlet system design practices that can be employed to assist in designing an effective combustion air inlet system.
