Known for its wanderlust ethos, HAVAIII's founder, Maximilian Waid, says, "The remarkable, often hidden beauty that lies within this global culture of travelling is what we attempt to capture with our designs." The latest pieces include the "Soulful Wander" Fleece sweatshirt, "Wander with Soul" Jersey Tank Dress, "Ensoleille" Flow Tank
Top and "Lost at Last Lounge" Tee.
My experiments take place in a large plexiglass flow tank
(think 12-foot treadmill, but for fish).
All four were attached to support structures and immersed in a flow tank
in the Marine Renewable Energy Laboratory at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
During one of our meetings it was suggested we pay a visit to the scale tidal flow tank
at the Southampton University that was built to study the Solent and Southampton harbour for the large ships that berthed there.
The snail in the flow tank
was exposed to similar conditions during the time the water flow to the tank was restricted.
The prototype was then tested on Betts' critical orifice flow tank
to verify the CFdesign results.
Sixty of these tiles were used for the flow tank
feeding experiments outlined below.
The modified flow tank
allows for choice of current velocity as well as substrate, and provides a larger area for study.
That beam protruded downward through a hole in a flat, horizontally oriented, clear acrylic plastic plate located 0.2 m above the floor of a recirculating seawater flow tank
(two flow tanks
were used, each 0.2 m wide by 2 m long, similar to that described in Vogel and LaBarbera, 1978).
Experiments were conducted in a simple flow tank
to assess the response of settling cyphonautes larvae to shear flow and their behavior in different boundary-layer flow conditions.
