The report extends previous results by investigating the effects of tube pressure level and alternate propulsion modes for a 300-mph TVS system. The ventilation system relationship to the tunnel size and quantitative assessment of the requirements for repressurization of the guideway tube are presented. The results of the analyses are integrated to provide the overall system requirements which can serve as a basis for the preliminary design of a 300-mph TVS. (Author)
