    The most interesting takeaway for me was, that different oceans require different strategies/ships.
    Until now, my perception of boat ranged from small to big, but not in the dimension of place of operation.

      @r m You're preaching to the choir. I didn't get any more time in the rack as enlisted and in much more austere conditions. I understand the path and responsibility of a CO but living conditions were an order of magnitude above the berthing spaces and conditions the enlisted ranks endured.

      @warsurplus CO staterooms are not that big. Mattress is usually a standard twin, or full size. Not plush. And the COs all have to earn their way up to that spot- you don't get to be CO of a billion dollar warship unless you step up through the ranks and make it there. Not easy, most officers never get there, they get out of the service after 5ish years. Those guys deserve a bit of comfort for the 4 or 5 hours of sleep they might be able to get in a day.

    I actually have a very very very big fear of indoor oceans like this. I went to a coast guard base in North Carolina in 2013 when I was in the Boy Scouts, and inside they had a wave pool, and a replica helicopter for practicing getting out of a submerged helicopter. Anyways, they turned on the pool and it started moving and I just had a secret panic attack and I was terrified. That was the day my fear was born. Watching this video is so freaking terrifying

    This is so rad!!! I'm a music producer and all these same principles apply to sound waves except sound waves are invisible to the eye. It's easy to hear standing waves in a room. If you play a constant low bass frequency and move around the room you can hear how certain parts of the room have boosted bass while others have nulls. So cool to actually see these principles visually!

    • Daniel Stefureac
      Daniel Stefureac Před 6 dny

      same here, i´m a prod/dj, one of the biggest jumps in my sound quality came from learning and understanding the sound as a block of air moving through the room, into your ears, reflecting and absorbing onto surfaces, and also the bandwidth of sound. A beginner often boosts the eq to make it pop out, but with time you learn to cut, and the more useless frequencies you cut, the cleaner your sound gets. Very few colleagues understand this principle. Also made my sound system in my studio 4 db louder just by placing it in the right corner xD. Might not sound much for the non musicians out there, but 4db is more than double as loud.

    As an Amature Radio Operator this really help me visualize different radio frequencies.. I really liked the part from 5:10 to 6:15 as it really helped me visualize the importance of SWR calibration an how it can affect radio equipment and amplitude across frequencies. Maybe I had to much to drink but I'm sure other operators would understand what I'm saying. Thought this was awesome because on paper you can understand the principle but in water you can see the "Magic".

    We had a very big wave pool at SERE but it was not quite this big. It was just really interesting how rough they could make the water in such a small space without it feeling cramped in any way. We had to get dumped in with our gear and be able to get up and onto a life raft, and then be able to call over radios.

      @Jonas H. Uh, yes it is. I think the term you’re actually looking for there is “liquid,” not “fluid”. But even so, the fact that air is a different phase of matter from water is irrelevant. Water and air are both fluids, so fluid dynamics apply to both ships and aircraft.

    Fantastic video. Started bodysurfing (thanks Dad!) when I was about ten. I still don't know what it is that I learned to feel and see to know when the "right" wave is approaching, and how I know where to position myself to enter it. Feels like an art. But, those guys probably have developed a simple three-step brochure.

    Well those swell waves are a useful early warning that a storm is coming, I was thinking that early on in the video before you mentioned swell. The different oceans having different wave characteristics is interesting. It might give lost sailors a clue about where they are!
    It would have been good to have more explanation of buoyancy and how the mass or density of the ship's materials makes it float and have a certain percentage of it above or below the water level.

    Hi, my first question after this video is why the water currents (natural convection that happens because of temperature gradients under water) are not taken into account in the formation of waves ? it would seem obvious that they are, but maybe their impact is far smaller than the wind ?
    If anyone has an answer... Thanks :)

      Salt water has a higher density so it is more buoyant, you can change the load weight and hull displacement to compensate for that and achieve a good simulation.

    Kelly Slater's wave pool is actually much larger than this, it's 700 meters(2296 feet) long, and 150 meters(492 feet) wide. Though it's only 9 feet deep. So even taking into account the extra depth of this one Kelly's is still much much larger than this and is used for surfing.

      I would guess that surfers have a better understanding of when the wave base interacts with the bottom, and less understanding of the dynamics where this isn't going on. I was wondering at the beginning if they'd be able to control the depth, but they probably just plan to avoid areas where it matters when the weather is bad.

    I would think this wave pool could be helpful in training Coast Guard Swimmers to train for rescues but they said they don’t let people swim in it. I wonder why they don’t allow it for a multipurpose use?

    Nowhere NEAR as amazing- but for anyone looking to try anything similar? Oregon's North Clackamas Wave Pool - not half bad if ever in the area and looking for some fun +wave simulated pool action
    Wishing everyone out there calm waters otherwise and a pleasant continuing day/night!

    I don't know if anyone else noticed, but the naval ship (791) in most of the video is one of five Singapore built Endurance class LPDs. This one is HTMS Angthong (LPD-791) of the Thai navy, the other four are Singaporean.

    This is fascinating stuff to a guy who spent 20 years sailing in the Navy from the North Atlantic to the Arabian Gulf. I actually had a shore tour with the David Taylor Research Center working with surface effect ships at their Patuxent River facility. Amongst the cool stuff we did there we did get to tour the Carderock facility and see the tow basin where they can pull model hulls over a one mile long pool that, IIRC, follows the curvature of the earth. Neat place doing useful research for us squids. Thanks for that.

      The Navy still has paints that we call DTRC because they were formulated there. Now that the official name is NSWC Carderock, the tow tank is the David Taylor Model Basin. It really is a cool place to work.

    Yes but how do they eat up the waves on the other side so that the reflections don't mess up the waves?

    Very cool video! Nice to see ocean engineering getting more representation. I've been to a couple different wave basin facilities similar to this one (testing wave energy converts) I think one topic that could have been discussed here is the Dispersion Relation, which mathematically identifies the changes in wave speed with frequency, although it is usually only used with linear wave theory. Another topic could have been the Stokes Drift, essentially the net particle transport moving with the waves, and the reason your rubber duck took so long to get to the breaking wave.

    • Kyle Pappas
      Kyle Pappas Před měsícem

      @Greg Dame yeah essentially it's the net horizontal velocity of a surface water particle due to wave action. According to linear wave theory, this net transport should be zero. The particle should make a full circular rotation. Stokes theory accounts for nonlinearities that allow this net horizontal motion. There is a wiki page on stokes drift if you care for more info!

    Fascinating stuff. Would have appreciated if you had touched on Navier-Stokes and why we still need to build testing facilities as opposed to full simulations. How far do you get with numerical simulations alone? How is it integrated with real-world testing? What's the percentage of simulations vs. testing in modern ship design?

  • TheyCalledMeT

    is the wear and tear between a tiny model and a huge ship really compareable?
    especially the immense forces working on the ships when being hit by a huge wave or being carried at one wave peak in the middle or 2 peaks on the ends of the ship?

    I am mainly impressed that all of the wave makers are so snug together that there is zero leaking behind them, despite all that water pressure, and yet they can still move.
