Abstract: The Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research (IIHR) has recently experienced rapid growth in number of experimental studies, in number of buildings housing these models, and in the diversity of the experimental projects. In order to provide for real-time data acquisition, experimental control and interactive processing of acquired data, the various laboratory facilities have been interfaced to a network of Hewlett-Packard minicomputer systems and microcomputers. These allow for both high- and low-speed multi-channel data acquisition, sensor traverse control, and data processing and graphics during and after experiments.
