Building the world's fastest car

Video courtesy HPC Wales.

Meet Ben Evans, a computational fluid dynamics engineer at Swansea University, UK. He is part of the team working to design the Bloodhound supercar, which aims to smash the sound barrier, thus breaking the world land-speed record.

This video, created by HPC Wales, explains how Evans is using high-performance computing resources to make sure the rocket-powered supercar stays on the ground - even at speeds of over 1,000mph (1,600kmph)!

High Performance Computing (HPC) Wales is Wales's national supercomputing service provider. Host to the UK's largest distributed supercomputing network, HPC Wales provides businesses and researchers with local access to world-class technology, as well as the support and training necessary to fully exploit it.
