American Leak Detection performed a structural inspection on the 300,000 gallon concrete Oregon State University Hinsdale Wave Research Tsunami Wave tank including two ramps. The tsunami wave basin is designed as a shared-use facility to understand the fundamental nature of tsunamis.
Our technician located multiple leaks on this massive wave tank numbering 15 in total of the two days he spent on the detection of this facility.
As part of George E. Brown Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation(NEES) program, the Tsunami Basin is designed as a
- Shared-use facility for next generation remote tsunami research
- Research on coastal processes
- Industrial collaboration
- Education and outreach
