Question

Even, in 1921, the Dodge Brothers built a boat named the SS
Delphine and it had a whopping 3000 HP.

So, how much horsepower would a Challenger SRT® Hellcat Redeye
Widebody need to tow the SS Delphine up the industry standard:
Davis Dam Grade Climb?

Pro Tips

Davis Dam assumed grade = 7%

Air density is sea level conditions (.002377 slugs/f^t3)

w(weight) of the SS Delphine + trailer + Redeye = 3,922,000 +
150,000 + 4451 Lbs

Crr = coefficient of rolling resistance = .015

Assume Combined CDA is 1555 ft^2

SAE J2807 (Davis Dam Grande Climb) - min speed is 40mpg (59
ft/s)

F(drag) = 1/2p x V^2 x C(d)A

F(rolling resistance) = W x cos x Crr

F(weight) = W x sin

F(sum) = F(drag) + F(rr) + F(weight)

P = F(sum)XV

convert to horsepower = P(1hp/550ft lbf/sec)

Answer #1

The answer can be obtained by direct substitution of the values into the formula

7% grade = 4 degrees

Total weight (W) = weight of the SS Delphine + trailer + Redeye = 3,922,000 + 150,000 + 4451 Lbs

= 4076451 lbs

Minimum velocity to climb = 59 ft/s

Net drag experienced = rolling friction + vertical pull of the gravity + Drag (due to the wind turbulence)

Rolling friction = W x cos(4) x Crr

Crr = coefficient of rolling resistance = .015

Rolling friction = 4076451 X cos4 X 0.015

= 60998 lbf

vertical pull of the gravity = W X sin4 = 4076451 X sin4

= 284359 lbf

Drag = 1/2 X p X V^2 X C(d)A

= 0.5 X 0.002377 X 59^{2} X
1555

= 6433 lbf

Net drag = 6433+60998+284359

= 351790 lbf

Minimum power required = P = F X V

V = minimum speed = 59 ft/s

P = 351790 X 59 = 20755610 ft lbf/sec

Converting it into horse power,

hp = P X (1/550) hp

horse power = 20755610 X (1/550) hp

**horse power = 37737
hp**

Online trolls drive us crazy saying that our cars are big, heavy
and that they drive like boats. Well, our solution to everything is
more horsepower.

Our competitors have modes to make their cars quieter... which
is embarrassing. Our answer to that would be to make a car faster
than the speed of sound.
