Uni-Systems Engineering designed, supplied, and oversaw installation of the adjustable wind damper (flap door) at The University of Miami Marine Technology Life Sciences Seawater Research Building.

Adjustable Wind Damper

A large wind tunnel behind the damper generates wind, and the damper controls its direction over the water in a seawater wave tank. The damper is operated in conjunction with a separate wave machine underneath it to simulate various weather conditions.
