Wave Generator
  • Observation of waves: different wave shapes
  • Using the set of beaches module, study the absorption and reflection of wave forces at different beaches.
  • Using the set of piers, study the behavior of waves at piers.
  • Motor
    • Power output:¾ Hp
    • Gear box: step down from 150 to 110 rpm.
    • Inverter: 1 Hp.

This module is used for the generation of surface waves

  • The wave generator is used for the experimental flume.
  • The generation of surface waves is done by a paddle swinging back and forth.
  • The drive of the paddle is through a crank mechanism and motor with gear.
  • The crank mechanism stroke is adjustable.
  • The motor has variable speed though a frequency converter.
