Wave Basin Supports Research

Posted on January 13th, 2011

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.

Research

Posted on May 7th, 2010

IIHR has been home to innovative hydraulic research since 1920, when a small model laboratory was opened on the banks of the Iowa River in downtown Iowa City. Research activities expanded rapidly, and by 1928 a larger Hydraulics Laboratory replaced the original small structure. Today, IIHR is home to a steadily growing research program and […]
