TRACKED LEVITATED RESEARCH VEHICLE PERIODIC TEST SUMMARY REPORT INDEPENDENT CUSHION SUSPENSION IN PERTURBED GUIDEWAY. AEROPROPELLED

The results of the first tests of the Tracked Levitated Research Vehicle (TLRV) in the Independent Cushion Suspension mode over the perturbed guideway at the Transportation Test Center (TTC) are presented. Vehicle dynamic response behavior is discussed for the speed range from 0 to 90 mph, including comparisons of test data with the responses computed using the TLRV Dynamics Simulation Program.
