  • Monochromatic and random seas generation up to 1.5m height in deep section. 
  • Maximum wave height up-to 1.1m.
  • Bi-directional recirculation system with maximum flow rate of 600l/s (to be operative in 2020).
  • Wave-Maker Control and data acquisition: NI LabView, MatLab.
  • Main instruments: resistive wave gauges,acoustic water surface level gages, load cells, pressure transducers, acoustic doppler current profiler, electromagnetic flow meter, digital video cameras, fast camera, 6DoF video tacking system.
