AERODYNAMICS OF TRAINS WITH MAGNETIC LEVITATION AND GUIDANCE

L'AERODYNAMIQUE DES TRAINS A SUSTENTATION ET GUIDAGE MAGNETIQUE

The author of this article, which forms part of a series of three studies on non-conventional guided transport in 1980, explains the different problems of train aerodynamics and the results of tests in test tanks and wind tunnels for the TR 04 and TR 06 Transrapid trains. The electromagnetic drag of bogies, in particular was successfully optimized and the total air resistance was reduced by more than 25 percent.
