HM 162.41 Wave Generator Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

The wave generator HM 162.41 consists of a powerful geared motor unit that operates a displacement flap via a crank disc and a continuously adjustable drive rod. The flap is fixed to the base of the flume by means of a rubber joint and swings back and forward. The waves can be changed in frequency and amplitude. The motor gearbox unit is fitted to a base plate that is placed in the discharge area of the flume, and fixed in place using bolts. It is possible to perform experiments on waves both with and without flow.


Learning Objectives / Experiments

- Investigations on waves: amplitude, frequency,

  forces, velocity
- Different wave shapes, wave reflection, absorption

  of wave forces
- Behaviour of structures in rough sea

For some experiments, additional accessories from G.U.N.T. are required.
