Aussie Invader Design

Aussie-Invader

K.J. Beer is designing Liquid Oxygen and Bio Kerosene fuel tanks for the Aussie Invader 5R rocket car.

K.J. Beer is designing Liquid Oxygen and Bio Kerosene fuel tanks for the Aussie Invader 5R rocket car. The car is being designed and built with the aim of achieving a land speed record of more than 1,000 mph (1,600 km/h).

The design will cover the design of the pressure envelope, tank supports and internal baffles (as required), material selection and weight optimisation.  

As the car accelerates, there is likely to be sloshing of fuel inside the tanks, which can upset the cars dynamics and make it unstable.  

K.J. Beer will be cooperating with another engineering company who will perform CFD of the tanks.
