View Full Version : 1000 mph supersonic car!!!!!!!!!!!

A new paper from the Swansea University, College of Engineering team working on the BLOODHOUND SSC (Supersonic car) project has been published on the aerodynamic characteristics of travelling at 1,000mph in the Journal of Automobile Engineering.

Simulations have looked at how the car will cope with the supersonic rolling ground, rotating wheels and resulting shock waves in close proximity to the test surface at the record attempt site in Hakskeen Pan, South Africa. Where, in 2015, it will make high speed test runs of up to 800mph, with the full 1,000mph attempt scheduled for 2016.


In order for a ground vehicle to travel at over 1,000mph (approximately Mach 1.3), the designers have created the most advanced fusion of space, aeronautical and Formula 1 engineering ever attempted. In the words of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, ‘the BLOODHOUND supersonic car (SSC) is the most exciting and dynamic engineering challenge going on today.’


Clearly, the aerodynamic challenges associated with developing a land–based vehicle capable of safely travelling at transonic speeds are great. Drag minimisation and vertical aerodynamic force control are of paramount importance for a safe record attempt on the constrained distance of 12 miles available at the record attempt site in Hakskeen Pan, South Africa.

Currently the land speed record is held by Andy Green with at 763.035 mph in the ThrustSSC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ThrustSSC) the first car to break the sound barrier & also one of Richard Nobles designs.

Can we keep this childish bullshit out of this thread? There are plenty of other threads out there for you to fuck around with this nonsensical bullshit

He's making a joke (or something resembling one anyway) because I got sick of sean & reese waving their dicks at each other in yet another thread.

Perhaps Alex will be my new deity. I haven't been very impressed thus far.

Yes Dr. It is awful but most Americans aren't very bright. As a matter of fact they aren't much in the way of what one would call 'free thinkers'. They essentially are sheep.

Her bleats say 'no'

But her eyes say 'yes'

Plus it is best no to piss off goats

They have long memories

(Think about that for a moment NoB)

But pan can seduce anything. He can apear as a woman

Pan has fucked us all at one time or another

As "ignorant" as we may be, we have still mastered the "multi-quote" function
