Abstract

Boats are the primary means of transportation in Venice. It is believed that there is a direct correlation between the wakes produced by different boats and the deterioration of canal walls. Our project analyzes this relationship, using an ultrasound system to monitor and record a boat's velocity, wake height and wake pressure on the canal walls.
