Event Details

Tour the O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory

Thursday, February 15, 2018 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

The visit to the Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory begins with a short introduction of the facility, what we do, and why physical model testing is necessary. Type of testing and examples of projects are also addressed, identifying the differences between storm and hurricane waves, tsunamis, resilience of coastal structures, or wave energy converters, among others.

A demonstration on how waves are generated in the laboratory and the general properties of waves, will be held in the small wave flume. A visit to the laboratory will include the Large Wave Flume and the Directional Wave Basin, where the visitors can observe the different activities in both facilities, which may be the preparation of an experiment, instrumentation, or possibly the actual testing with waves. If no experiments are being held in the facilities, waves will be run as a demonstration to the visitors.
