The Model Basin Facilities is the scenario where the practice classes of the MAERM are carried out. The towing tank with a dimensions of 100m length, 3,8m wide and 2,2 m deep, has a wave generator of regular and irregular waves and any hydrodynamic test can be done on ship and offshore structures models. During the classes, “the Stabiliy test”, “resistance test”, “extinction test”, “seakeeping test” and the set-up of the different tests are done.
MULTIDIRECTIONAL SURGE TANK ETSICCP
The surge tank is the central facility of the laboratory. Small-scale tests of different infrastructures are carried out here, whether they are coastal and offshore, both anchored and floating.
Thanks to its great versatility and state-of-the-art generation and acquisition equipment, numerous sea states can be simulated in it.
Dimensions: 33m x 11m x 1.36m
The generation of multidirectional waves is carried out by means of 16 piston-type blades with active absorption of reflected waves manufactured by HR Wallingford. The system is capable of generating up to 0.30 m wave height with a period of 4 s
