Flume tank
Description
Type of entity Equipment
Description Closed circuit circulation tank filled with fresh water, dimensions: 24.50m long, 7.50m wide and 3.30m high. The concrete part where experiments can be set up is 12m long, 2.6m wide and 1.5m deep. A mobile bottom belt measuring 6.20m can be synchronised with the water flow velocity, which ranges between 0.1 and 1.1m/s. Hydrodynamic testing, especially of model fishing gear. The tank is also equipped for static or mobile testing with current meters, dynamometers (single and multi-component cells), motorised holding arms and an excitation system.

Examples of work The tank is used to support fisheries research projects. It helps assess the design of or modifications to fishing gear before testing at sea, and thus saves time. The tests range from studying the shape of a sorting grate for working vessels or for an experiment, to establishing the curve of a lifting surface. Hydrodynamic studies on various issues are performed at the tank on an ad hoc basis. Collaboration with fishing industry, government bodies, training centres and industry.
