MAGLEV VEHICLE OSCILLATIONS AND DAMPING MECHANISMS
The problems of designing a magnetically levitated vehicle to afford good riding qualities have been outlined. It is concluded that a satisfactory system will incorporate auxiliary coils in the cryostat, probably as part of an active control system. A British project directed specifically to produce a demonstration and test vehicle has been described. A vehicle is being designed, and calculations and model tests to establish the stability of the guideway are being undertaken. Propulsion of the model by a linear synchronous or commutator motor is being considered.
