Multipurpose experiment tank


1. The tank

This tank is provided with ferro-concrete walls, one side of which has five one-meter square viewing windows for observing underwater motions of the experimental model.

  • Dimensions
    40m (length) × 4m (width) × 2m (depth)

2. Gauge trolley

The gauge trolley slides over the tank. A variety of models can be attached to the trolley. Running the trolley at different speeds allows monitoring and analysis of characteristics such as water resistance to various motions.

ModelAnalog uniaxial two-wheel drive
Acceleration ratewithin ±3%F・S


  1. Tests of flow and wave effects on various marine structure models
  2. Tests of the kinematic characteristics of mobile underwater objects
