Video: pressure distribution at 200mph

Stress plot of applied pressure due to 200mph speeds. (deformation exaggerated 91,000 times)
Applied forces used in the analysis.

This is an animation of the forces acting on the body shell at 200mph. The movement of the body is greatly exaggerated to help show how the body deforms at these high speeds. The video runs through quickly, so you might have to pause it at different steps in the video to see all the details. One thing to note is how much stress is concentrated on the front wheel wells.
