FEA ANALYSIS PERFORMED

Front and rear wheel uprights were newly designed for the Silvermine type 11SR.   A detailed stress and deformation analysis of the new uprights was performed by Italian specialist company Phitec Ingegneria (https://www.phitecingegneria.it). This was done by means of Finite Element Analysis (FEA).   Material stresses (also internal) and deformations were presented for various load […]

AERO DESIGN IMPROVED

The aerodynamic design of the 11SR was updated and improved, using the results of the CFD analysis. This included a redesign of the car’s floor and diffuser strakes, increasing the rear downforce markedly. The flow beneath the car was cleaned up to increase downforce and lower the car’s aerodynamic resistance.   For more information, contact […]

CFD ANALYSIS FURTHER DETAILED

A detailed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of the 11SR model was performed by German specialist company MantiumCAE (http://mantiumcae.com). Pressure distribution and air velocity around the body were made available, including detailed internal flow patterns and their interaction with the external flow. Possibilities for improvement of the present configuration were indicated by the CFD company, […]

FRONT SECTION INSTALLED

The front section has been installed, complete with upper wheel arches, headlight units, gas springs and radiator exhaust ducting. The section hinges to give access to the brake/clutch/steering systems, and to the car’s front suspension.   For more information, contact us at info@silvermine.nl

REAR SECTION INSTALLED

The rear section has been installed, complete with upper wheel arches, lighting units, gas springs and thermal insulation. The section hinges to give access to the engine compartment and to the car’s rear suspension.   For more information, contact us at info@silvermine.nl

BODY PANELS SPRAY PAINTED

The body panels have been spray painted and are ready for final assembly.   For more information, contact us at info@silvermine.nl

BODY PANELS PRE-FITTED

The side panels and the hinged front part of the body have been pre-fitted and will be finished next.   For more information, contact us at info@silvermine.nl
