About the project:

The Capstone project conducted by senior students at the University of Maine is to upgrade the Moors Lab wave tank to include a removable water flume. The preliminary design features a low pressure water flume, consisting of a submerged adjustable floor, a shaft driven dual propeller system, and a 7-1/2 horsepower motor. By expanding the capabilities of the wave tank, this will allow for a broader spectrum of research and testing to be conducted at Moors Lab. Details…
