EFD Data

Validation Data

The IIHR ship hydro team has completed many experimental studies in the IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering towing tank. At left are links to individual pages that provide a description of the experiment, references, and archived datasets. A brief table of experimental conditions is also included; however, usually one or more of the references can be downloaded to give a more complete description of the experiment, including experimental setup, conditions, data locations, uncertainty assessment procedures, and results.
