FloWave tank officially opened

Edinburgh University’s spectacular new circular wave and current tank, designed and built by Edinburgh Designs, has been officially opened.  This tank can create 360 degree waves and current, independently of each other, and has been designed to simulate wave conditions anywhere in European seas.  Waves are created using 168 paddles arranged around the tank, and strong tidal flow conditions can be simulated using 28 propellers located under the floor.  The centre of the floor can be raised to the surface to assist in setting up devices.
