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)!
