In our last post we took a look at the fabrication of our all-new bar-and-plate oil cooler designed specifically for this project. Now that we have our coolers complete, it is on to testing. We will test our large bar-and-plate cooler, our small bar-and-plate cooler, and our traditional-style 19-row cooler. This will allow us to compare the effectiveness of our … Continue Reading ››

Heat Exchanger FabricationThe lead engineer on this project, Dan, plans to test several designs, including an all new heat exchanger design for this … Continue Reading ››
Prototype BracketLast time, we looked at how we began our bracket design and also the location of the oil cooler. Our design has certainly progressed since then. After we were certain of the dimensions of the bracket, we ditched the cardboard for some steel. Using our waterjet the engineers cut out our first functional prototype bracket. The waterjet is one … Continue Reading ››
