Particularly suited for general testing of coastal infrastructures, nearshore processes research, wave hydrodynamics, floating structures, renewable energy devices, and numerical model validation. Consists of a large basin of water outfitted with a wave making machine that is designed to generate short- and long-period multidirectional waves.  DesignSafeExperiment   DesignSafeWave
