Abstract:

The towing tank at the University of Michigan was constructed in 1904. This report concentrates on the upgraded speed control installed in 1982. A description of the control hardware is included. Estimates of the level of accuracy of the control along with a calibration procedure are given. Results demonstrate that the new speed control has a maximum relative deviation from calibrated values of under 0.1.
