Since the dawn of Racing Aeolus in 2007 the rules included a device that should prevent the rotor
from overspeeding. Over the years this device has been heavily debated and only halfheartedly
implemented. We, the Racing Aeolus committee, came to the conclusion that an automatic system
limiting the rotor speed is very important and should be part of every car participating in the 2015
Racing Aeolus. On these pages we want to give an explanation why we think this way and provide
some help to those teams who find the implementation of such a system challenging.
In 2013 we saw what happens when the connection of a rotor blade fails. Luckily nobody was seriously injured. But everybody realized the potential risk the event of a rotor failure poses. So we asked ourselves: “How can we prevent this from happening again?”
The goal of this report is to enable the race organizers to asses the safety of the concerned WPV and its compliance with the rules. It should be brief and precise (drawings can help a lot). If you participate with more than one vehicle, please create one report per car. If there are calculations with a safety factor of less than 1.5 you have to explain in detail the measures you took to ensure the safety of the car in case of a failure of the concerned parts. All units must be SI units. Non-SI units will not be accepted. The layout of this report may not be changed. All information contained in this report will be handled confidentially.Download here
