Pile Driving Lab Equipment

Researchers from Battelle and the University of Maryland developed this apparatus to evaluate fish injuries related to pile driving. Fish are held in the center of this water-filled metal tube while pistons at each end fluctuate to simulate the pressure changes that happen when metal piles are pounded into the ocean floor.
