New Model Test Basin


New Model Test Basin

The Australian Maritime College, the national centre for maritime education, training and research, has announced the construction of Australia’s largest model test basin for testing ocean engineering structures. The new facility will be ideally suited to conduct research and consulting for the burgeoning oil & gas industry, and will help support exploration and development in Australia’s newly established 200 mile Exclusive Economic Zone.

This will contribute substantially to Australia’s ability to benefit from the enormous potential available in this vast natural asset. The model test basin will provide staff and students with the opportunity to conduct world class ocean engineering research, and will underpin the exciting new Bachelor of Engineering (Ocean Engineering) being offered at AMC. The new test basin will complement the existing specialist facilities at AMC, which are used by industry as well as staff and students from Universities all over Australia. This will cement AMC’s position as the nation’s premier maritime research and educational establishment.

The model test basin will be 35m long, 12m wide, and will have an adjustable water depth up to 1m. It will be equipped with a multi-directional wave maker and will have the capability of towing models at speeds up to 4 metres per second.
