Over the last half year MARIN has worked extensively with SBM to study the challenging hydrodynamic aspects of the GAP system, using the High Reynolds VIV test set-up in the High Speed Basin. A 2D scale 1:5 model of 3.6 m length was extensively tested. The Reynolds numbers could be preserved in the tests by scaling the speed up by factor five.
