A large scale wave flume with 450 m long, 5 m wide and 8 ∼ 12 m deep, has been constructed by Tianjin research institute of water transport engineering Ministry of Transport in July 2014. As a wave experiment flume, it is the largest in dimension and has strongest ability in wave generation in the world at present. In this paper, the basic information and main equipment is introduced with comparing some other large flumes in the world at first, and then the application prospect of the large scale wave flume in TIWTE is pointed out by combining the function design and related facilities.
