EFFECT OF GUIDEWAY DISCONTINUITIES ON MAGNETIC LEVITATION AND DRAG FORCES

Transients on the lift and drag forces on a NdFeB permanent magnet were observed as the magnet passed over various discontinuities in a rotating aluminum disk at velocities of 4 to 25 m/s. For full cuts in the disk, the amplitude of the lift and drag trnasients and the waveform of the drag transient depend on the width and the amplitudes are much larger than for partial cuts. The use of a backing plate to join two cut segments is ineffective.
