Concentric Wave Singularity

The FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility at the University of Edinburgh is designed to test physical scale models of marine renewable energy devices. The testing tank is 25m in diameter, contains 2.4 million liters of water, and surrounded by 168 wave making mechanisms. The system can produce multi-directional waves and is optimized for testing 1/20th scale models with the equivalent of 28m waves and currents in excess of 12kt.

While the concentric wave singularity (aka 'The Spike') would not occur naturally, it demonstrates the ability of the system to create precisely controlled waves.

1. Bullock would have never passed the psychology tests.
2. You nailed this one.

I wonder if its approximately equal to current motors. Why build things as complicated as they are when you can have this?

Amazing. What Volts/Amps are you putting in?

I love your videos. Looked up what I could on ionic liquids - fascinating! Now, how do you make the fluid?

Do you know of a way to electroplate aluminium to copper besides zincated? I need the copper atoms to directly contact the aluminium. Same with iron. Needs to be aluminium then iron. Thank you for your videos! I've already ordered oxalic acid, TSP and ammonia sulfate :)

This guy needs someone to vet half of these.

Amazing. You know you can order $20 of bismuth and the magnet, attached to the discs, will move without vibrated any sort of armature. Using magnetron/microwaves you can beam energy at the axis. You may need something to absorb it, like carbon,  instead of bouncing off of it. Just an idea.

This is a great experiment. Follows the Faraday Disc and MagnetoHydroDynamics. That you for this video.
