The DHI Hall 1 shallow water basin is capable of producing regular and irregular waves as both long and short crested (3D directional spreading) waves. Focused wave groups can be generated for breaking wave impact testing. The basin is equipped with a current generation system with a maximum flow rate of about 1 m3/s for combined wave-current testing. Wind generators can be mounted in the basin for generating wind forcing on floating bodies.
The facility is used for consultancy and research activities for e.g. offshore wind, load and scour tests, floating wind, ports and harbour tests for breakwater stability, overtopping, wave agitation, ship motions and mooring studies, oil and gas such as FSRU and platform installation tests, and wave energy converters.
