Multifunctional Ship Model Towing Tank

The multifunctional ship model towing water tank is an important test facility for the research of dynamic performances of ships and various underwater vehicles. Located on Minhang Campus of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the towing tank is 300m long, 16m wide and 7.5m deep, and it’s equipped with a towing vehicle with a maximum speed of 10m/s and rail facility, and a multi-unit wave generating system on one side of the tank body. The towing water tank, when completed, can be used to carry out ship model resistance test, propeller performance test, wave-resistant performance test, maneuvering performance test and self-propulsion and control tests of special underwater vehicles, being of important significance to cutting-edge scientific research and industrial support services.
