Representative Facilities

Small towing tank with wave maker and water circulation

The tank has a length of 7 m, a width of 1 m and a depth of 0.5 m. We can also tow a model of ships. The maximum wave height and current velocity are approximately 5 cm and 5 cm/s, respectively. The tank is suitable for a concept model test using models of offshore structures with a scale ratio of 1:100.The motion of ships can be observed.

Rotating table tank

Rotating table tank has a diameter of 2 m. A video camera can be installed at the top, which rotates with the table. The rotating table tank is used to reproduce the current fields in lakes and coastal seas. The effects of earth's rotation can be taken into account by rotating the table at around a rate of 1 rpm.

IIS Ocean Engineering Basin / Horizontal Circulating Water Channel with Wave Maker and Wind Tunnel

Ocean Engineering Basin IIS Ocean Engineering Basin has a length of 50 m, a width of 10 m, and a depth of 5 m. The basin can create waves, currents, and wind. The basin locates in Kashiwa campus.
Ocean Engineering Basin Horizontal Circulating Water Channel with Wave Maker and Wind Tunnel has a width of 10 m and a depth of 5 m. The channel can create waves, currents, and wind. The channel locates in Kashiwa campus.

A prehab for electrolysis

Ocean Engineering Basin A prehab for the experiments of electrolysis locates in Chiba Experimental Station. We do not use this facility after Kashiwa campus moved from Nishichiba to Kashiwa in 2017.

Others

We have the equipments (load cells, motion capture, etc.) for water tank testing, and the equipments (wave and current profiler, temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen meters, etc.) for field investigation. Also we have several computers for numerical simulation.
