Wave Tank /

The LVV contains a precision, glass-sided wave tank. The tank features a flap wave generator at each end enabling simulation of representative deep water waves. The tank sides consist of 25mm toughened glass with steel side rails ensuring cross-sectional uniformity. Software enables the simulation of sine waves, multi-spectral seas and perform demonstrations of special effect waves. The software allows a single computer to synchronise wave generation with data collection and trigger experimental rigs.
