A segmented hydro-elastic model of the Canadian Patrol Frigate (CPF) is described. The construction and instrumentation of a two part composite backbone is described. The hull contains many systems and features to permit extensive data collection on a free running flexible model. The instrumentation, data colleciton systems and important calibrations are described. Drawings and photographs illustrate this sophisticated model.
