Tsunami Simulator

Tsunami Simulator

Forget about jet ski, surfing and other rookie simulators, here’s the real deal. People at HR Wallingford in Oxfordshire has created a Tsunami Simulator.

Engineers use fans to suck water out of the narrow, 150-foot-long flume into a low-pressure tank [A]. A set of valves release air into the tank [B] and force water into the flume, generating a miniature wave [C].

Water continues to flow from the tank, adding to the wave’s back end to replicate a tsunami’s ultralong wavelength. In 50 seconds, the process creates a scale version of a 9,000-foot-long, 100-foot-tall monster.
