The 1,000 mph engineering adventure

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 9th Jan 2013

The BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car, launched by Richard Noble and Andy Green in October 2008 is set to take the land speed record into a whole new speed regime. The team, including researchers from Swansea University at its heart, plans to take a manned vehicle to 1000mph, increasing the current land speed record (763mph) by over 30%.

The target presents the team with massive scientific and engineering challenges, not least of which being how the car will stay attached to the ground at these speeds. The CFD (computational fluid dynamics) research team at The College of Engineering at Swansea University has been working on answering such questions, and predicting the overall aerodynamic behaviour of such a vehicle.

The BLOODHOUND project is currently entering the build phase with vehicle completion expected in mid-2013. The car is then due to be tested in 2013 in an attempt to increase the World Land Speed Record from 763 mph to 1,000 mph. Dr Ben Evans from the BLOODHOUND team will answer both the how and the why questions related to this iconic project.

Cost: Free of Charge
