O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory – Large Wave Flume

Affiliation: Oregon State University
Facility Name: O.H. Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory – Large Wave Flume
Address/Location: 3550 SW Jefferson Way, Corvallis OR, 97331, USA
Coordinates: 44.563818, -123.291292

The Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory, established in 1972, is a state-of-the-art Center conducting both applied and fundamental research to address ocean, coastal and nearshore processes via physical model experiments. Hinsdale makes learning and discovery possible. With two large-scale experimental facilities, investigators are able to perform physical model testing of coastal systems subject to the action of tsunamis, waves, and/or storm surge. A large variety of projects have been carried out at the Laboratory including wave propagation, wave-structure interaction, stability of coastal structures, beach erosion, offshore structures, bio-fouling, floating structures, and testing of renewable energy devices.
