Designing a 1,000mph car - the use of CFD
The BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car is set to take the Land Speed Record into a whole new era. The team plans to take a manned vehicle to 1000mph by 2018, increasing the current Land Speed Record (763mph) by over 30%. This target presents the Bloodhound CFD team with massive scientific and engineering challenges. Dr Ben Evans of the University of Swansea will talk about the aerodynamics of the Bloodhound SSC project and discuss the extreme challenges of designing a car to reach 1000mph.
