Wave Basin Supports Research
IIHR’s new $4.9 million wave basin offers research engineers the opportunity to test captive or radio-controlled model-scale navy ships under a variety of real-life conditions. The free-moving models can maneuver just like real ships. The wave basin allows measurement of local flow around a free-running model—something that’s never been done before.
