Large Water Tank Test

As part of the BASM-WEC project, we are excited to share the results of our first experiment conducted at the Kelvin Hydrodynamics Lab’s large water tank. Our team installed a larger scale (1:30) oscillating water column with a membrane at the top, designed to capture the deformation of the membrane under different wave conditions.
To gather accurate data, we utilized the Qualisys system to track the movement of the membrane. Additionally, we installed a pressure transducer and wave probe to monitor the pressure and wave elevation inside the air chamber during the experiment.
This information will help us better understand the behaviour of the membrane in varying wave conditions and contribute to the development of more effective wave energy converters.
