Britain develops the world's fastest supersonic car: 1600 km/h

"detective dog" car pencil shaped shell will be made of aviation grade aluminum

"detective dog" car is known as the world's fastest car with high-performance chemical fiber On November 25, Beijing time, it was reported that the British times station reported that the supersonic car "Bloodhound" designed by British automotive engineers will be officially manufactured in the near future, which is expected to cost 15million pounds. The "detective dog" car claims to be the fastest car in the world, with a maximum design speed of more than 1600 kilometers per hour

it is understood that the "detective dog" car is expected to be completed and rolled off the production line in 2011. At that time, the test drivers will test its speed in the desert of the Northern Cape of South Africa. Designers hope that the speed of the "detective dog" car can reach 1600 kilometers per hour, which is far faster than the speed of sound. At present, the maximum speed of ground vehicles is about 1227 kilometers per hour. This record was set by Andy Green, a pilot of the Royal Air Force in 1997. By 2011, the "detective dog" car will still be driven by green

the pencil shaped shell of the "detective dog" car will be made of aviation grade aluminum. The car has three engines. The first is the jet engine of the European "typhoon" fighter, weighing about 400 kg; The second is the rocket engine; The third engine is mainly used to deliver fuel to the rocket engine. The three engines will generate a total of 135000 horsepower, equivalent to the power of 180 F1 cars

according to the power calculation of the car, the "detective dog" car will be able to accelerate from standstill to 1689 km/h in just 40 seconds. As the first test driver of the "detective dog" car, green will feel 2.5 kg of pressure during acceleration and 3 kg of pressure during deceleration. This kind of pressure will make green's blood flow back all over his body. He may even stop breathing. Before the test run, green will receive a series of flight training and simulation training. Green said, "I will try my best to fly head down in the flight show. My biggest advantage is that I have 20 years of jet flight experience. The technological progress in the past decade has given me full confidence."

previously, green drove a wide variety of "propulsion" supersonic vehicles to set the fastest ground driving record in the desert of Nevada. "Propulsion" is also the only car in the world whose speed exceeds the speed of sound. It uses a fighter turbine engine as its power, with a top speed of more than 1200 kilometers per hour. However, compared with the "propulsion", the "detective dog" car body is lighter and smoother

compared with traditional cars, the "detective dog" car will no longer use the traditional wind tunnel test and drawing simulation. Every detail of it (even the paint on the outer layer of the car body) will be simulated by a group of powerful supercomputer arrays. When the speed reaches 1600 kilometers per hour, any little extra coating on the outside of the car body will be enough to cause the deviation of the direction of the car, and even cause major danger

as early as 2006, Lord darrasson, the British Minister of science and innovation, put forward this R & D plan. He hopes that this program can inspire the next generation of engineers' enthusiasm for learning and innovation. In the UK, about 25000 schools have courses related to "detective dog" cars. In these schools, teachers can vividly explain the relevant knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering through the demonstration of the structural details of the "detective dog" car
