Ocean Simulation Lab
The Ocean Simulation Lab at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) provides government and commercial clients with quality facilities and experienced staff to conduct testing and performance evaluation services in more than 10,500 square feet of air conditioned laboratory space and 12 ocean simulation test chambers that range in pressures to 30,000 psig and sizes to 90-inch diameter. The staff is experienced in various complementary services such as strain gage application/monitoring, helium leak testing, electrical and fiber optic cable testing, and API valve and tubulars testing. We provide capabilities for the complete evaluation of your product including development of testing procedures, test design, test setup, static and cyclic structural/pressure/thermal testing, evaluation of the results, and generation of the final report. SwRI maintains an on-site machine shop and complete report production services.
