 USA Flume

    

 

 

 

     A swimming flume is used for
training and testing. The flume
is a swimming treadmill that
contains 50,000 gallons of water
with a current that can be
adjusted from zero to three meter
per second (6.7mph).
     A unique feature of the flume
is that it is built in a hyperbaric
chamber and can adjust the
altitude from sea level to
8,000 ft above sea level.
