Experimental facilities include:
  • Two large-scale water channels
  • Wave tank
  • Wind tunnel
  • Pressure-driven air facility.

Extensive systems for quantitative visualization, based on high-image-density particle image velocimetry, are employed for characterization of complex, separated flows in both the water and air systems. Techniques of unsteady pressure and force measurement are also available.
