2012 Tank Tests, Cedex

These tests took place at the CEDEX facility in Madrid, Spain in 2012. We investigated single and multiple device arrays, different layouts and the impact of gaps between devices. The effects of panel shape, such as “dog bone” edge shapes. We also tested 25 and 30m panels. These tests were also used by GL Garrad Hassan (now DNV) to validate the WaveDyn software.
