TRACKED LEVITATED RESEARCH VEHICLE BODY/CHASSIS SUSPENSION IN PERTURBED GUIDEWAY AEROPROPELLED

The results of the first tests of the Tracked Levitated Research Vehicle (TLRV) in the Body/Chassis Suspension mode over the perturbed guideway at the High Speed Ground Test Center (HSGTC) are presented. Vehicle dynamic response behavior is discussed for the speed range from 0 to 70 mph, including comparisons of test data with the responses computed by the TLRV Dynamics Simulation Program.
