A COMPARISON OF LIMRV LIM GUIDANCE SYSTEM EXPERIMENTAL DATA WITH MATHEMATICALLY PREDICTED VALUES USING REACTION RAIL SURVEY DATA

This document discusses the survey of 1,000 feet of Linear Induction Motor Research Vehicle (LIMRV) reaction rail at the Department of Transportation Test Center in Pueblo, Colo., and a comparison of experimental data from test runs of the LIMRV LIM guidance system with theoretical predictions using the survey data as an input to a mathematical model. While some deviations from predicted values were observed, in general the correspondence between experimental data and predictions was excellent.
