Barriers to be more dangerous for bikes
A new standard for roadside barriers makes them safer for cars but more dangerous for motorcyclists, according to international road safety watchdogs. This is what happens when a car hits the barrrier but imagine what would happen to a motorcyclist
Top Fuel Chris Hand Blown OFF of Bike at 218MPH!!!
Chris' left hand came off the grip before the 1,000Ft mark and he got blown off the bike at 218MPH!!!
The safety gear did it's job because he was at the track the next day with only a small bandage on one hand!!!
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"

If you have to ask why, it can't be explained to you.
