Significance: Established in response to a campaign to create a national hydraulics laboratory during the 1920s, the Waterways Experiment Station's activities include the resolution of hydraulic problems in waterways and harbors as well as the design and testing of hydraulic structures through the use of physical and numerical (computer generated) models. The Station has become the world's largest and best-equipped laboratory facility for practical application of experimental hydraulics. It has been designated an Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
