TEAMER Description FAU’s Hydrodynamics Laboratory houses a wa
FAU’s Hydrodynamics Laboratory houses a wave/towing/flume tank and a low-turbulence water tunnel. The laboratory is equipped with optics, cameras, load cells and flow measurement equipment. A glass-walled wave/towing/flume (18.3 x 1.2 x 1.2 m) can also be used to generate waves, and for towing physical models. The flow in the flume can obtain velocities up to 0.5 m/s. In addition, the towing carrier can reach a velocity of 1.0 m/s. A recirculating water tunnel (2.5 x .25 x .25 m) was specially constructed for PIV measurements and flow visualization. The test section has sides and bottom walls made of glass, an optical table as a base, vibration-damping supports and aluminum railings to facilitate the mounting of optical and experimental equipment. Capabilities include: Tow tank testing, PIV measurement, WEC and TEC hydrodynamics.
