Alden Research Laboratory – Tank Testing Capabilities

Alden has unique facilities to help developers test and improve their wave energy conversion equipment. Combined wave and wind loading as well as mooring techniques can be evaluated for wave energy capture systems on scaled models. Both linear and basin type wave tanks are available, as well as onsite field measurement services to provide bathymetry, wave height and direction measurements, current velocity measurements, water and tide level data acquisition, sediment-water interface monitoring, and biological surveys. Wave energy conversion systems have been tested at Alden since the 1980’s.

Capabilities include:

  • Tow tank testing
  • Wind-water interactions testing
  • Wave and current bathymetry and site data analysis
  • Physical modeling
