The hydrodynamic performances of ship are investigated by using two model tanks.

The High Speed Circulating Water Channel is an experimental facility for measuring forces acting on model ships and other objects and observing water flow patterns around them. We can perform not only experiments on ship propulsive performance relating to fuel consumption, but also various fluid experiments. The test section is 6 m long, 2 m wide and 1 m high. The facility is designed to achieve a maximum current speed of 3.3 m/s to study high-speed ships.

The Seakeeping and Manoeuvring Basin is an experimental facility for investigating the dynamic characteristics of ships and floating bodies. The basin is 38.8 m long, 24.4 m wide and 2.0 m deep. A computerized planer motion carriage and plunger type wave maker are installed in the basin. We can perform captive model tests and free running model tests in both calm water and waves.
