Series titleContractor Report
AbstractWaves were generated in the BC Research Ocean Engineering Centre towing tank with the existing generating system using a signal generator. These waves were recorded on a strip chart recorder with the aid of a capacitance-meter wave probe and the Asystant Plus Data Acquisition Software Package. From these data, a transfer function was deriuved relating the peak-to-peak wave height (in inches) and the frequency (in Hz) of the generated wave to the peak-to-peak voltage and the frequency (in Hz) set on the signal generator.
