Physical model testing remains an important tool for de-risking and performance optimisation within the marine and coastal engineering sectors. The All-Waters Combined Current and Wave Test Facility will be based in Edinburgh to cater for large scale laboratory testing at scales of 1/40 to 1/10. Uniquely, the facility's circular basin incorporates simultaneous combined current and wave generation. The circular design reduces 'dead zones', helps control reflections (due to the installation of absorbing wavemakers on the entire perimeter) and provides for complex directional control of the sea states. This paper offers a broad examination of the design issues and practical solutions being developed to bring this facility into operation.
