Scale Model Testing

This video will give you a feel for what goes on in a model basin. Basically, what they are doing is testing a smaller version of a proposed design to see how it will fare under a range of conditions. The more they can discover and correct now, the more successful and reliable the full-sized version will be when it is put into use. This scale model testing is brought to you by William Froude, scale model testing pioneer.
