This talk will give an overview of the computational design optimisation strategy employed to achieve an engineering solution to the problem of excessive supersonic lift at the rear of the BLOODHOUND SuperSonic Car. I will describe the design challenge, give an overview of the computational fluid dynamics procedure used, then detail the design optimisation strategy employed. The optimal design resulting from this study will be presented and contrasted with the un-optimised baseline geometry. This work is the subject of an upcoming joint paper with members of Swansea University and BLOODHOUND Ltd. The final vehicle geometry presented is currently being built and is due to be tested in 2012 in an attempt to increase the World Land Speed Record from 763mph to 1,000mph, and to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians in the process.
