ESTEX Facility

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

ESTEX is a large research and development experimental facility constructed by the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, U. S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) at the Waterways Experiment Station, (WES), Vicksburg, MS. The facility will be used for research in unsteady, non-uniform flow and transport research in all hydrographical zones for advancing the understanding of hydrodynamic processes that are important to water resources conservation and management.

ESTEX has three main components: a 60 ft by 60 ft by 10 ft deep water research facility (DWRF) directly connected to a 420 ft by 60 ft by 4 ft deep research basin (REBA), and a parallel 10 ft wide, 480 ft long flume with depths of 4 ft and 10 ft. A removable partition wall permits formation of an inset flume of any width up to 60 ft and a variable cross-section. It is capable of time-varying unidirectional or reversing flows. Tides and/or currents can be generated separately in the flume as well as in the basin. Pumps installed on two large, fully covered sumps with recirculating arrangement generate flow and tides.
