FLUCOMB is a unique system in the world for the combined generation of high performance waves, currents, wind and rain.  The flume has a cross section of 1 x 1.2 m and a length of 13 m.  Wind speed can be up to 12 m/s, current speed with bidirectional pumping up to 0.75 m/s and rainfall up to 300 l/(m2xh), with the possibility of drop heating.


The combined and adjustable generation of all subsystems offers great testing possibilities but at the same time it is a great control challenge, especially in the bidirectional and simultaneous performance of currents and waves.


The combined channel allows the Atmosphere-Ocean Interaction Section of the CEAMA Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Granada to study the processes of wave generation and the exchange of mass and energy between the atmosphere and the ocean, specifically between the boundaries of the atmospheric layer (ABL) and oceanic layer (OBL).
