The feasibility of the laboratory experiments was demonstrated by Xiuzhang Zhang. The operating conditions of the turntable were improved thanks to a design by Leonardo Montenegro. Several students also contributed to this project: Chris Robichaud was instrumental on numerous occasions and actually ran some of the laboratory experiments, which also benefited from the work of Mike Robinson, Kristy Redrick, and William Anderson. Mohamed Iskandarani aided in the analysis of some of the numerical data. The development and present application of the SEOM model were supported by the Office of Naval Research (N00014-93-0197) and the National Science Foundation (NSF, OCE96-19780), respectively. The laboratory experiments were conducted with the support of NSF (OCE96-17639).
