The LVV comprises of:
Three large, individual climatic test rooms allowing simulation of temperature, humidity, wind and rainfall effects. One room contains a 3.2m x 2.2m integrated Multi Axis Shaker Table (MAST). Further electrodynamic vibration systems allow a flexible range of testing to be conducted both within and outside the climatic test rooms.
A precision glass-sided wave tank with double flap wave generator (12m long, 1.5m deep) enabling simulation of deep water conditions.
A strong floor (16m long x 3.5m wide) and wall (3m tall x 3.5m wide) enabling the testing of large components and structures in a range of mounting configurations.
Flexible laboratory space suitable for a broad range of dynamic testing at ambient temperatures (approx. 12m x 12m).
