TECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH SPEED GROUND TRANSPORT

This report contains highlights of research findings developed during the second year of research at M. I. T. on the technology of high speed ground transport(HSGT). The research topics are diverse but can be grouped roughly into areas relating to system operational performance, vehicles, including suspension, propulsion, and control; and the problems of the infrastructure of an HSGT system. The research is aimed at establishing a basis for design of HSGT and often treats problems not previously studied for conventional transportation systems. (Author)
