BMW engine blow up
'till the end...
***THIS IS NOT MY CAR***
Thanks for all your hate, I can't see what's wrong to have some fun with a WRECK, just a little 316i unable to serve for safety road usage.
How not to inflate a tyre!
The only way to get the tyres on the Outbak was with the aid of gas and matches. Not recommended for the faint hearted!!! как не раздувать шину
Extreme Engine Failure
This engine was donated to a school's automotive program, had outlived its usefulness, and was scheduled to be sent to the junkyard. By contractual law, it had to be destroyed or re-donated once we were done with it. It could not be sold or parted out. This video was part of a recruiting video hence the music. I'm working on posting the original clip without the music.
Turbine Engine: full power ... LOUD!
This is more film of the GE LM1500 gas turbine engine running at the S&S Turbines open-air test cell.
All the noise in the beginning is made by the start cart, which is a 90Hp turbine engine. Even when you hear the LM1500 start to wind up, it's not even running until you see the heat waves coming out the back of it.
This happens when the operator opens the fuel valve at around 2,000 rpm.
In the middle of the video, when the noise in an unbearable shriek, the engine is turning just over 7000 rpm, and is blowing hot air out the jetpipe to the tune of a little more than 15 thousand horsepower.
The air flow through the engine at full power is about 150 pounds per second.
In the view of the control room screen, the numbers are as follows from left to right along the top of the screen:
EGT or Exhaust gas temperature in degrees Celsius, measured just after the last stage of the turbine, which is just behind the second green steel frame holding the engine.
Next is RPM. This engine has basically one rotating shaft, and you can just barely see the 1st stage compressor blades moving on shutdown. Engine RPM is of this common shaft, upon which all compressor and turbine stages are mounted.
5,000 rpm is idle speed for this engine.
Last, on the right, is lube oil pressure, in pounds per square inch. These engines have roller bearings, not journal bearings like a car engine, so oil pressure is mainly an indication of oil flow. A lot of flow is needed, because the oil is used as a coolant for the main bearings. The engine will run with no oil pressure, except the bearings will overheat, so monitoring of oil flow is very important.
This is the same engine you see in "Starting a large turbine engine"
Note: All references to podracers will be deleted.
If you have to ask why, it can't be explained to you.
Corvette c5 z06 blows up
I am posting this video cause you don't see the full version with the reason for the explosion. The video is from http://SpdKilz.com
"This is a tribute video to my friend (and President of my car club, Shocker Racing) James' 2001 Z06. He was at the track on 4-9-05 and we think his fuel pooled in his intake manifold and BOOM. BTW, he was using a window switch for his Nitrous, and had the setup professionally installed. All that other BS you hear online is just that. This was a technical malfunction within the system."
Audio(Green Day - Good Riddance) had to remove as apparently putting in the video is copyright violation. I would like for it to be clear that this video was never mine nor have I ever claimed possession of the video material or audio material.
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359 Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Engine Failure due to bird strike. With Radio telephony. Boeing 757. Not filmed by me.
Mustang Blows Up on the Dyno
Sadly, the highest HP car to use our Dyno was also the messiest to date. We look forward to the rebuild and the return of this car.
