Admiralty Experiment Works - In 1870, the Admiralty granted ?2,000 to William Froude to build the world’s first model experiment ship tank at Torquay and run it for 2 years . Experiments into the stability and propulsion of ships began in 1872 and when the site proved too small, it moved to Haslar, Gosport in 1886. Its work expanded to cover all types of naval vessel, including the submarine, and the testing of oils and oil fuel. Reports on experiments carried out, from 1874.
