Shockwave build up

The UK's next land speed record car aims to reach speeds in excess of 1000mph. This simulation video compiled by Swansea University shows the surface pressure build-up on the bottom of the Bloodhound (left) and on the ground (right). You can see the shockwave build up as it travels well beyond the sound barrier.

This is to go with the surface pressure vid.
