Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

(OP)
So I decided I would share these links - they are my writings and studies of Cosworth F1 Engines + A Brian Hart F1 Engine over the years. The recent thread on Engine cooling in the other section made me think of them. They are mainly based on the Cosworth TJ V10 and CA V8 F1 engines which I bought some time ago.

I must admit, some of the write-ups are a little clunky as I was just getting a feel for it at the time but the info is there none the less.

I still do them to this day although time is of short supply compared to what it once was since getting engaged!

Sharing for two reasons -

1.Many people may not have seen them
2.Engtips is the first Engineering forum I ever signed up to which over the past (10yrs?) taught me a lot and gave me confidence to write on such subjects since I'm not a Qualified Engineer.

In no real order -

Since these engines are now 10-20yrs old I would consider them history and something we may never see again sadly.

Enjoy,

Brian,





RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

Very nice.

Thank you for taking the time and for sharing.

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

Brian,

Very cool. Did you do this on your own, or do you work for somebody who pays you to chop up expensive motors and take photos of the results? Do you need an assistant? :)

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

yeah, I always thought one of the coolest jobs in the world was cutting thru engines and other machinery & painting the cut edges :)

The problem with sloppy work is that the supply FAR EXCEEDS the demand

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

Cutting things up and painting the edges....

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

yeah, like that, what a cool job.

@BtrueBlood,

Its all self funded...expensive game indeed but to be honest the rewards are worth it. Its amazing how much of what I've seen I've used in my day job which is high level r+d for various companies around the world.

I've my entire v10 modeled in cad too which is nice - it was moreso to trial fusion360 with a large assembly to be honest - fusion did just fine. I use all the cad formats(badly sleeping2) so I was keen to try fusion to add to the mix as some companies, even big ones are starting to use it now too.

Brian,

"Its all self funded"

Then hats off to you, sir! tiphat

Seriously, that is a cool hobby.

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

BrianGar, Does a person dare ask, what does an obsolete F1 engine cost? Feel free to decline :)

One that could be made run again - about 60k - one that runs...about 120k.

You can of course buy blocks and stuff for the fanboys that make tables from them(what a waste I'd rather cut them up) but these would have insane miles as in 2200+ and could never be ran - these fetch about 2-2.5k.

I currently have a Cosworth V10 which will soon be ready to start up.

Brian,

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

Ok, thanks. Yow :)

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

I thought I was fairly familiar with fire tube locomotive boilers, but that cutup and painted boiler surprises me.
From the steam dome above the fire tubes, the function of the large steam pipe going forward towards the valves is clear. The second pipe going back towards the cab? For pressure gauges back there?

Why are the fire tubes looped "back" towards the cab? It would seem their best draw happens on a once-through passage, then to the extractor blastpipe and smokestack going up.

RE: Cosworth F1 Engine Engineering History

Trying to figure out that too, but are the looped back tubes not the superheater lines, running tube-in-tube (steam in the center pipe)?
