A NEW OSCILLATORY FLOW TUNNEL FOR USE IN SEDIMENT TRANSPORT EXPERIMENTS

David B. King, John D. Powell, Richard J. Seymour

Abstract


The details of a new oscillatory flow tunnel at Scripps Institution of Oceanography are discussed. The flow tunnel has a large crosssection and large water excursion distance. The piston motion is programmable. The test bed can be tilted. These, and other aspects, make the facility useful to a wide variety of oscillatory flow sediment transport experiments.
