How To Create A Car With Electromagnetic Propulsion Power

Peugeot 2008 HYbrid air

A maglev train floats about 10mm above the guide way on a magnetic field.

It is propelled by the guide way itself rather than an on board engine by changing magnetic fields. Once the train is pulled into the next section the magnetism switches so that the train is pulled on again. The electromagnets run the length of the guide way. means in theory trains and track would need no maintanence at all. The second advantage is that because maglev trains float, there is no friction. Note that there will still be air resistance. A third advantage is less noise, because there are no wheels running along there is no wheel noise. However noise due to air disturbance still occurs. The final advantage is speed.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato English Italian-style car

93What if a vehicle combines Italian elegance and a powerful sports car from England? Aston Martin V12 Zagato Concept is a plausible answer. Only 150 units are produced Zagato V12 for sale starting at £ 330,000 (about $ 525,000) in the second half in 2012.

On the anniversary of the legendary 50-year model DB4GT Zagato, the British car company – the Aston Martin Zagato design company held an opening ceremony Zagato V12 supercar at the Villa D’Este Concours event (Italy) . More interesting from the Italian manufacturer has officially confirmed that they would bring this concept to mass production line in 2012 and the end of the first V12 Zagato to customers.

Legendary names like DB4GT Zagato, DB7 Zagato and V8 Vantage Zagato was established by the combination of Zagato and Aston Martin. And now, once again the perfect link to this revival with V12 Zagato version was developed based on the chassis of the V12 Vantage and the use of technology One-77 supercar.

Design and optimization of convection efficiency of radiator by using brass alloys

921.0 INTRODUCTION

The internal combustion engine in an automobile is a complex piece of machinery made up of 150 moving parts. The cylinder in the IC engine withstands the high explosive force developed during the combustion process and also the very high temperature ranging from 2,0000C to over 2,8000C during operation. Radiators are used for removing the heat developed during the combustion process. The same phenomenon takes place in, railway locomotives, piston-engined aircraft, stationary generating plant or any similar use of such an engine.

Automotive cooling system operates by passing a liquid coolant through the engine block, where the heat from engine is absorbed, then through the radiator where it loses this heat to the atmosphere. This coolant is usually water-based. It is usual for the coolant flow to be pumped, also for a fan to blow air through the radiator. The radiator transfers the heat from the fluid inside to the air outside, thereby cooling the engine.

What Differentiates Supercars from Mainstream Cars

91Bugatti veyron, McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari FF and many other fast and expensive cars like these comes under the supercars category. But one can ask, what is a supercars and what differentiates them from the mainstream cars? So let’s see what differentiates these supercars from the mainstream cars.

Let’s start by understanding mainstream cars like Toyotas, Fords and many others. The first thing that these cars have is the fact that they are a convenient mode of transportation, and are developed to offer daily commutes an easy, comfortable and affordable mode of transportation. The primary function of these cars is to take people from point A to Point B safely and comfortably. Now if you look at the super cars like Bugatti veyron, McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari FF etc then you’ll find that these cars are total contradictory of the mainstream cars. These supercars are fast, expensive and surely not easy to drive. As a matter of fact, if you buy a Bugatti veyron or McLaren MP4-12C or Ferrari FF you might actually will have learned driving once again. These supercars come loaded with modern equipments, and uses immensely high tech automotive engineering, which surely is not easy to understand. So, it’s pretty apparent that these cars are not the vehicles that one can or will like to use as their daily commuting vehicle.

The Supercars like Bugatti veyron, McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari FF incorporates high tech racing car engineering, and if handled by experienced and skilled drivers, these cars immensely easy to maneuver, particularly when you take them on tight curves and on high speed. But again, the person driving these cars should be skilled enough to handle these fast machines successfully, or else it could end up in severe accidents.
