The turbine rotor of ship has a mass of 900 kg and radius of gyration 600 mm. It rotates at 1800 rpm clockwise looking from the stern. Determine gyroscopic couple and it’s effect when; (i) the ship is travelling at 40 km/hr and steers to left in a curve of 100m radius ; (ii) the ship is pitching and the bow is descending with maximum velocity. The pitching is simple harmonic, the periodic time being 30 seconds and total angular moment between the extreme positions is 120.
