Ideally, cavitation tunnel tests are the basis of an efficient ship design. The transmission of powers by the propeller is combined with an unwanted physical occurrence, so-called cavitation.
In the Sloshing Laboratory, the motions of a ship are simulated. A plastic tank mounted on top of the motion device represents a cargo tank of the ship.
The Institute of Ship Technology, Ocean Engineering and Transport Systems maintains a laboratory for experiments to be carried out as part of the training in ship technology
In co-operation with the TUHH, a slamming test facility (property of the TUHH) was mounted on the circulation tank.Slamming pressures can be measured.
The ISMT operates a stereoscopic Particle-Image-Velocimetry System (PIV-System) for the non-intrusive measurement of velocities in three components within a measurement plane. The advantage of using PIV compared to a 5-Hole-Sensor or Laser-Doppler-Anemometry (LDA) is the simultaneous acquisition of velocities in the desired plane, while the other techniques require a repositioning of the measurement device. Furthermore, compared to the 5-Hole-Sensor, the advantage of PIV is also its non-intrusiveness.
