UNIVERSITY OF RHODE ISLAND SELECTS MODEL 1520

 

February 22, 2005 - Rolling Hills Research Corporation is pleased to announce that the University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI has selected the Model 1520 Research Water Tunnel for use in it's Biological Sciences program.  Dr. Cheryl Wilga will be using the water tunnel initially for studies of shark locomotion.  Dr. Wilga's work is very interesting to RHRC since it is an application of the water tunnel that we don't often see.  However, many of the same techniques used for aircraft research are applicable to experimental biology, such as digital particle image velocimetry (DPIV), as shown in the photo below.
