Large Scale Wave Flume of the Maritime Engineering Laboratory

Description The Large Scale Wave Flume of the Maritime Engineering Laboratory (LIM) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), is an international research facility for controlled hydraulics experiments in coastal, harbour and oceanographic engineering and in other fields such as aquaculture and renewal energy. Many national and international projects have been carried out at the facility since 1993, the year it opened. In 1997, it was recognized as a large-scale facility by the EU’S Directorate-General for Research, and in 2006, as an outstanding science and technology installation (ICTS) by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education. The CIEMLAB, which is 100m long, 3m wide and up to 7m deep inside the current generator’s wells, is a facility of excellence for scaled tests and studies under close-to-real conditions. Typical working scales are between 1:2 and 1:20, although it is also possible to work at the other scales. The larger scale ratios enable the scale effects inherent to all scaled experiments to be reduced. The CIEMLAB is open to the worldwide scientific community through an access programme granted by the EU, the Spanish Ministry and the facility itself (see http:ciamlab.upc.edu).
