AGT GUIDEWAY AND STATION TECHNOLOGY. VOLUME 8. WEATHER PROTECTION CONCEPTS

The objective of the project is to develop guideway, station, and weather protection concepts which will reduce the cost and implementation time associated with AGT systems as well as to improve performance. In Volume 8, weather protection concepts are presented for guideways associated with AGT systems, with emphasis on minimizing costs and energy consumption while maximizing system operability/reliability during winter weather. The concepts include a comparison of embedded pipe and electric heating systems with varied heated widths, heating densities, and amount of utilization.
