We celebrate 50 Years of CEHINAV
ETSIN Towing Tank began its journey 50 years ago. From the beginning, several naval engineers, as well as many others from different disciplines, have passed through this singular infrastructure, having their first contact with hydrodynamics, which has then been many times important during their professional career or led to a phd thesis. Many companies, both national and international, have also trusted the towing tank group with several research projects. These actions have come along with significative scientific contributions in research journals and congresses.
With all this in mind, next Friday 22 December, at 12 hours, there will be a conmemorative act in the Hall of ETSIN.
