This interactive project is based around the Bloodhound land speed record attempt. The Bloodhound is a rocket and jet powered car that travels faster than a speeding bullet. The interactive project allows students to interact with the Bloodhound and tweak the car to their requirements in an attempt to 'Beat the Bloodhound'.
- Interface development
- E-learning material development
The system then submits the adjusted car body mesh into a simulation and calculates the forces acting on the vehicle at each point of its flight, and of course most importantly its top speed. As well as creating a fully interactive system to be used by 14-16 year olds in classrooms as part of an engineering competition we also created this video to explain and promote the project.
