This laboratory consists of a water basin 68m long, 2.6m wide and 2m
deep.  Physical models are tested in the basin in simulated wave
environment of the proper scales. The facility has both a low-speed and
high-speed tow carriages, a computer-controlled wavemaker, and a
hydraulic oscillator.  Instrumentation capabilities include some of the latest
techniques, such as systems for laser fluorescence imagery,
digital-particle image velocimetry.
