REPULSION MAGNETIC SUSPENSION RESEARCH--U.S. PROGRESS TO DATE

An outline is given of the progress made during an 8-year period of United States' research on repulsion magnetic suspension particularly those programs supported by the United States Department of Transportation. Discussion starts with small-scale laboratory experiments measuring the lift and drag forces on superconducting coils, continues through measurement of cryogenic losses, superconducting parametric studies, and ride predictions, and concludes with a summary of the recently completed conceptual vehicle design and system study.
