Technical Lecture 05 March 2020 – Boldrewood Towing Tank

Presented by Bertrand Malas

The Boldrewood towing tank at the University of Southampton is currently near completion as the carriage drive system is being installed. This new facility is located at the recently opened Southampton Boldrewood Innovation Campus, which the University shares with Lloyd’s Register’s Global Technology Centre. With dimensions of 138 m x 6 m x 3.5 m and a maximum carriage speed of 12 m/s, this world class facility is ideally suited to support teaching, research and commercial clients, not just for conventional ship model testing but across the aerospace, energy, and transportation sectors.

The lecture will be followed by a tour around the towing tank itself.
