Engineering Tank

The engineering tank in the ocean engineering lab is a deep water testing basin. The 60 x 40 x 20 foot tank is used for a variety of experiments where simulating unobstructed, open water environments is required. Several additional components offer a variety of testing platforms. For example, the acoustic profiling tower can be used to test hydrophonic transducers for array shape and intensity. The mounting apparatus is capable of a full 360 degree sweep and 40 degree elevation at 1/10 degree resolution. Contact Laura Gustafson for scheduling information.
