Halo is a control part supplied by FIA. It has to be on the car as supplied (with optional custom fairing). I don't see any development avenues there.
Yes, I know. I was responding to another member's idea about "cheating" by making a lightweight, but externally identical, halo.
I think exhaust mass flows are around 0.5kg/sec and 0.7kg/sec for V8 and turbo respectively.roon wrote: ↑Thu Aug 08, 2019 8:57 pmAs you eluded to in the RB15 thread, the strategic aim of the WG pipes might be affecting the velocity and pressure of vortexes forming at and aft of the rear of the car. I think of the exhaust blown diffusers. They were situated directly at the point of vortex formation, but these wastegates outlets are not, by decree. Presumably this reduced proximity would reduce effectiveness, however mass flow and velocity from the WG pipes are potentially much greater than what the NA V8 exhausts could achieve.
I'm curious to figure out if the turbine can be used to create significant exhaust backpressure. If it can impede flow enough via rotational velocity then perhaps all exhaust flow can be routed through the wastegate pipes.
If anyone knows approximate intake flow rates and exhaust pressure values we could an idea of WG flow properties. Their diameters are prescribed within a range.
The air coming out of the sidepods is low momentum air that has had all the energy taken out of it, by passing through all the radiators and so on.
Isn't the upwash mostly from the huge counter rotating vortex pair generated by the rear wing?upwash on the vortecies coming off the diffuser?
The floor has two huge ones as well that merge with the rear wing. Or at least should if you want a fast car.Isn't the upwash mostly from the huge counter rotating vortex pair generated by the rear wing?
Fancy! I like that.MtthsMlw wrote: ↑Wed Sep 04, 2019 6:00 pmInteresting design, cutting drag but retaining their normal Y250 setup.
