Circulating Water Channel

See naval architects craft new designs for maximum bulk capacity in modern shipping.

Documentary 1969 11 mins


At one of the world's most advanced laboratories for naval architects, water can be made to flow uniformly and with a level surface past experimental designs for a ship's hull. These experiments assist in the design of new and better ships, and in helping to understand the effect of flowing water on many other kinds of marine structure.
