hydraulic radiator with air intake

I fitted the hydraulic radiator with it’s air intake to the car. He’s above the engine air intake at the very rear of the engine. The hydraulic system on a modern Formula 1 car operates the throttle, clutch, gearchange, differential and power steering (till last year also front-wing adjuster mechanism).It runs with a preassure of around 200bar (2900psi) and a temperature over 100°C.

The hydaulic cooler with it's air intake, but with no fluid line connected.

My name is Paul Bischof. I’m a student in mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Graz in Austria, expected finishing in February 2016. Since I was eight years old, I am building model planes out of paperboard. Since 2004 I scratch (that means building without an assembling set) Formula 1 and sportscars in 1:10th scale. The average time I need for such a car is around 400 to 700 hours within 4 to 8 months. One car has around 3500 up to 5000 single components. On this blog, you can take a look on my work and later, after my studies, hopefully you can see me in Formula 1.
