Hydrographic Survey: Single beam and Multibeam Sonar
The William B Morgan Large Cavitation Channel (LCC) is a large variable-pressure closed-loop water tunnel that has been operated by the US Navy in
Memphis, Tenn., USA, since 1991. This facility is well designed for a wide variety of hydrodynamic and hydroacoustic tests. Its overall size and capa- bilities allow test-model Reynolds numbers to ap- proach, or even achieve, those of full-scale air- or water-borne transportation systems.
