Controlled wave generation

Wave movements have a significant impact on the function and lifespan of ships, offshore installations and coastal engineering. This is why scientists and engineers study these effects in hydrodynamic research labs. Their findings lead to new engineering standards and improved safety. Bosch Rexroth will provide you with complete drive and control solutions for controlled wave generation.

Hydrodynamic research labs

Different conditions such as wind, currents, water depth and water temperature have an impact on wave activity. In the open sea, the energy content of waves can therefore fluctuate by a factor of 1,000. Hydrodynamic research labs have to be able to map this broad range. The high density of water requires equipment that can generate strong forces and will work reliably even when operating around the clock. Rexroth develops wave generators and customized drive and control systems for wave absorbers as well as drive and fixation equipment for adjustable basin floors.
