Sheikra Water Splash

Sunday, April 30, 2006 10:19 PM
I have not seen many sites that teel you how water splashes work so, I have some questions on how Sheikra's water splash works.
  1. What type of water splash is it and how dose it work?
  2. Why dose it have the water go so high and how dose it get that high?
  3. Finaly, do the trains get rusted by the water splash efects?

I hope people will help me figure this out. Also I have some Pics from RCPro to help out but, I could not solve my problem.

I was also thinking that the Ballgo (sorry for spelling) in Las Vegas has wter jets that can shoot up to 100ft.+ or some thing like that. Maybe those are the type of water jets they use.

I believe there are two large pipes on the rear of the train that create the two large streams you see when the train comes to the splash.

Also, dose is spelled does.

I'm pretty sure Neuski is right and it is done using the pipes on the back of the train. The reason the spash goes so high is due to the speed of the train and the angle of the pipes. YOu can see the pipes on either side of the train in this picture:

Those pipes are it, and they are also the only part of the train that gets wet so there is no rusting problem.

As for how it gets that high, simply physics the drag of the pipes through the water accelerates the water and the angle of the pipe aims the splash.

OK, thanks every body. I thought I saw funnels on the under side of the trains before. I thought that there was water blast (Pic) but now I know they are just under water barriers.
