Re: Starship rotors & Drilling
FWIW: Drawing an analogy with electronic component heat sinks. A lump of
metal is only able to dissipate a fixed amount of power for a given
temperature gradient. In still air whether the lump of metal has a complex
series of fins or is just a rectangular shape has little effect on the
amount of power that can be dissipated. It is only when air is forced over
the surface of the heat sink that the design of the heat sink has an effect
- and a well designed heat sink will dissipate substantially more power for
a given temperature gradient than a poorly designed one.
I'd have to agree with Eric the first step would be to increase the air
flow to brakes.
