Combined Wind, Wave and Current Tank diagram

The combined Wind, Wave and Current facility is unique and was designed for use with any, or all, of the components with equal emphasis.

Services Offered

The facility was designed with small scale model testing for renewable energy devices in mind. However, it is also suitable for standard resistance, sea keeping and wind loading tests experiments. Testing capabilities include:

  • Wind loading on wet and dry structures
  • Resistance measurements
  • Seakeeping tests
  • Combined wind/wave/current interaction
  • Flow visualisation experiments
