Wave flume & wave basin for 2D & 3D modeling
CAMERI’s testing facilities include a wave flume and a wave basin that are unique in Israel. We run in both facilities precise and accurate tests that meet the highest engineering requirements. Our methodologies such as calibration, setting, measurement, verification and validation follow the body of knowledge and latest world guidelines.
Our ongoing investments in both facilities as well as their data systems allow us to meet the highest standards of Engineering, quality control and safety assurance. Our team of experts insure the symbiose between the client’s objectives and the essential characteristics of the project and engineering frameworks. Our goal is to provide high-quality services to fully satisfy clients and shareholders needs and expectations.
Wave Flume for 2D Modeling
CAMERI’s wave flume is 48 meters long, 2.50 meter wide, and 1.5 meters deep.
The flume has a piston-type wavemaker with an electric drive system and is equipped with an Active Wave Absorption Control System.
The flume is used to conduct stability tests, floating and submerged vessel towing, and wave-structure interaction tests.
Wave Basin for 3D Modeling
CAMERI’s wave basin is a unique research and testing facility in Israel. It has an area of 50×25 square meters where we run physical models for the Haifa Bay area (including the Haifa Port, the Kishon Port and The Mifrats Port).
A piston-type upgraded wave maker produces waves of up to 12 centimeters in a water depth of 60 centimeters and enables us to investigate many aspects of maritime design objects including breakwaters, quays, and agitation models for various circumstances.
Ship Models Production
Over the last few years, CAMERI has developed in a joint effort with the Technion and our dedicated contractors the capacity to design and build models of vessels. Our team of expert in Naval Architecture and Marine engineering use the latest technologies in CNC and 3D printing in order to craft 1:120 scale of real-world ships.
Developing this “shipbuilding” capacity provide us the tools to test the entire physical modeling requirements.
