3 OUTLINE BLOODHOUND SSC Project World Land Speed Record Importance of aerodynamic design Process of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) Validation of the process and THRUST SSC CFD applied to the design of BLOODHOUND SSC Conclusions

4 THE BLOODHOUND SSC PROJECT

5 LAND SPEED RECORD 1898 Gaston Ch-LaubatFrance 39mph 1904 Louis RigollyFrance103mph 1927 Sir Henry SegraveUK203mph 1935 Sir Malcolm CampbellUK301mph 1964 Donald CampbellUK403mph 1964 Craig BreedloveUSA526mph 1965 Craig BreedloveUSA600mph 1983 Richard NobleUK633mph 1997 Andy Green UK 763mph (Mach 1.016)

7 BLOODHOUND SSC: DESIGN CHALLENGES propulsion structural performance control of the dynamic stability confirmed braking system strategy aerodynamics

8 UNCONTROLLED LIFT FORCE Donald Campbell’s Bluebird Coniston Water January 4 th 1967

9 ANALYSING AERODYNAMIC DESIGNS: WIND TUNNEL TESTING

10 ANALYSING ENGINEERING DESIGNS: COMPUTER SIMULATION Simulation using computers (a) mathematical model (c) computer solution (d) analysis of the results Olek Zienkiewicz 1921––2009 (b) approximation aerodynamic modelling→computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

11 MATHEMATICAL MODEL: AIR FLOW Basic laws of physics: conservation of mass, momentum and energy

12 APPROXIMATION: 1D uniform subdivision non–uniform subdivision the subdivision: mesh creating the subdivision: mesh generation sub–regions: elements nodes: approximation gets better as the element size decreases or as the number of nodes increases

13 APPROXIMATION: 2D

14 CFD PROCESS: 2D define the regionmesh generation analyse solution actual wing mathematical description of the aerofoil section approximate equations and solve

15 AUTOMATIC MESH GENERATION: 2D REGION

16 CFD PROCESS: 3D actual aircraft mathematical description of the aircraft surface mesh generation analyse solution define the region approximate equations and solve

17 COMPUTER PERFORMANCE/COST 1990s: CRAY C90 supercomputer several million pounds10 3 MFlops national supercomputer centres 2010: PC cluster £130K430 cpus 9x10 6 MFlops university departments

18 CFD: FLITE3D

19 THRUST SSC PROJECT THRUST SSC 1997 Ron Ayres

20 THRUST SSC: CFD VALIDATION Mach Experiment CFD μ=0 1 million elements 24 hours CRAY C90

21 CFD: VARIATION IN LIFT ground surface axis of vehicle ground surface axis of vehicle

22 THRUST SSC World Land Speed Record 763 mph Black Rock Desert, Nevada October 15 th 1997

23 BLOODHOUND SSC: DESIGN EVOLUTION project launch October 2008 current design initial concept 2007

24 BLOODHOUND SSC: DESIGN FEATURES battery pack front wheels front wings cockpit oxidiser tank motor for rocket oxidiser pump jet engine intake duct jet engine rocket rear wheels rear wings atop the vertical stabiliser (fin)

25 WHEEL DESIGN pressure coefficient on the surface single keeltriple keel single keel triple keel

26 ENGINE INTAKE DESIGN CFD for the twin intake CFD for the modified single intake design total pressure at the engine face

27 FRONT WHEEL PLACEMENT yaw angle = -2º Original designModified design yaw angle = 5º
