Abstract
This thesis examines the possible uses of coal and coal derived fuels for propulsion of the ships of the United States Navy. The need for this study was precipitated by the worsening supply of oil in the world. Included is a review of the world energy problem, and estimates of when real shortages in petroleum can be expected.
