Aerospace Air Propulsion Project

  1. Apr 13, 2012 #1
    For a project I am looking into the possibility for a wheeled vehicle to be powered by a ducted fan. At this stage in my process I am only certain that the vehicle will weigh about 200 pounds and will be powered by a 2 horsepower motor at 2000 rpm and operate on low friction surfaces. I am looking for the vehicle to move around 15 ft/s. If anyone could help me with calculations that could justify the feasibility of such a vehicle would be greatly appreciated. To give you an idea of my educational background i am currently in college for engineering with no coursework in aerodynamics.
    Thank you.

    I have an idea that will work in theory...but i cant release details other than the fact that the vehicle will essentially run on air....yes, air.
