Hydraulics Laboratory

A) Experimental facilities
ITU Hydraulic Laboratory was established to carry out physical modeling applications of water structures such as breakwaters, breakwaters, dams and related art structures, sedimentation basins and underwater basins belonging to hydraulic, coastal and marine engineering works.

6 serbestlik derecesinde hareket edebilen 3 Boyutlu Sualtı Sarsma Tablası
3-D Underwater Shake Table with 6 degrees of freedom
The 3-D underwater shake table has a reservoir of 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.2 m and can perform movements in 3 degrees of freedom and 3 degrees of freedom. The optimum working capacity is 5 tons and the maximum working capacity is 15 ton.
