This was a damn exciting challenge - there have been very few challenges that involve supersonic vehicles. None, actually. So what a surprise that we got as many submissions as we did. We had a superb panel of professionals to judge all of them and select the best of the best here.
Our jurors included Al Dean, Editor-in-Chief of Develop3D, Anthony Norton at Altair, Will Milling at PI Congress, our very own Kaspar Kiis and of course, Mark Chapman, Chief Engineer for the BLOODHOUND SSC (seen at PI Congress in photo above). They selected on how well entrants followed the rules and regulations. More importantly, they chose the design that made it easiest for test-pilot Andy Green to handle the BLOODHOUND SSC at 1,000 mph.
1st Prize - Anthony Michael
This looks like a good solution. Lighter weight than a lot of the others, nicely executed.
-Al Dean, Editor-in-Chief, DEVELOP3D
2nd Prize - Amir Tayyebi Moghaddam
3rd Prize - Chris Pollard
4th Prize - Stoianov
5th Prize - Thales de Oliveira Arouca
Honourable Mention - Ancoraimparo
However there is no CAD files included we still think the entry is worth to mention. Interesting concept with very informative documentation included.
