Scale Model Tests

The purpose of tests with scale models (in a small wash basin) is to confirm some basic principles. By using scale models configurations can be changed rapidly. Also tests can be made with good repeatability as there is more control over the test conditions.

To avoid confusion the term "probe spacing" refers to the spacing between the two individual rods of a probe pair, while "distance" or "range" refers to the distance between probe pairs (i.e., the communication path).
