Cavitation Research Laboratory,Australian Maritime College,University of Tasmania--塔斯马尼亚大学澳大利亚海事学院气蚀研究实验室



  It is unique in Australia and one of the few experimental laboratories in the world used to test hydrodynamic behaviour of submerged structures such as submarines and ship hulls.

  Working closely with the (DSTO) Defence Science and Technology Organisation the facility plays a key role when providing research and advice on the future development of submarines, destroyers, patrol boats and other maritime vessels.

  Interest in cavitation has traditionally been in hydraulic and hydrodynamic applications such as in hydro-electric machinery, nuclear plant and rocket propulsion. Modern research is more diverse and often focused on fluid dynamics with potential applications in medicine, biomedical engineering and biology.
