Bore Soliton Splash Mini here
Onno Bokhove designed a 1 to 20 model of the bore soliton splash. We built it in my studio. And it works.

- FabLab Enschede -
I'm working now as coordinator for FabLab Enschede
My work consists of starting up the FabLab (it opened may 2011) and running the place.
It involves making manuals and presentations, helping customers, coaching assistents and trainees, keeping materials on stock and machines in working order. Beside that I also help developing FabLab Enschede, finding a way to make it a stable place, determine the topics that it must represent. I also moved, so I've been very busy last year.
But finally, things do get settled. I have more time now for other jobs than FabLab only.
FabLab Enschede means getting involved in 3D printing, lasercutting and working with new 3D software such as Blender and Grasshopper. This results in new designs for my other work and in experience in design for laser and 3Dprinting. After my graduation i did not stop learning, in contrary: i got many new experiences.
- Soliton Splash -
Make a soliton wave splash over the edge. The principle is used in an opening ceremony at the Twente University
What can we do with it? - Make a bigger splash of course! -
The next step was a full scale test at the new matrix square (O & O plein) at the Twente University
A triplex board became a thick wooden construction, too heavy to lift by hand.
And the result:
example at youtube 32 seconds
- The opening -
The splash, result of a bore combined with a soliton. Mission accomplished.
A second run was also made, slightly different water depth: this resulted in a double soliton.
The difference in water depth was just 2 cm at a total depth of 41 cm.
Onno is about to get wet feet but he does not know that yet.
(the squares in the water are confetti)
more information (will be extended, pictures and movies of testrun, presentation of Onno Bokhove about Soliton Splash)
- Roombeek rotors -
Sculpture in the water, commissioned by Impact and Waterschap Regge en Dinkel
Two of the finished rotors for the sculpture in the water. Stainless steel, polished, mathematical symbols attached, reflecting the sky outside the studio
The rotors perform well, a summer storm in august delivered 149 liters per second, the rotors still turned nicely. But at the normal level of about 5 - 10 liter per second they also work well
more about this rotor, video's
