CONCEPTUAL DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF THE TRACKED MAGNETICALLY LEVITATED VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM (TMLV). REPULSION SCHEME. VOLUME II. APPENDICES A - F

This report summarizes the studies of a program to establish the technology of magnetic suspension for ultimate use in a passenger-carrying high-speed ground transportation (HSGT) system - at speeds on the order of 134 m/s (300 mph). Magnetic Levitation (MAGLEV) is one of the advanced vehicle suspension concepts considered as alternatives to conventional transportation modes in the short-haul regime. This volume presents some details of the mathematical analysis associated with the MAGLEV vehicle dynamics and control (i.e., ride quality) in Appendices A through D; the noise or acoustic characteristics associated with the baseline Hamilton Standard Q-fan air propulsion system (Appendix E); and the Raytheon final report for the linear synchronous motor (LSM) studies (Appendix F).
