HYPERLOOP
The Hyperloop
• A concept for a fifth mode of transport after
planes, trains, cars and boats.
• Cheaper, faster, less environmental footprint.
• Inflection point of about 1500 km after which air
travel becomes faster and cheaper.
Hyperloop
Elon Musk

Founder of PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity.
"When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is
possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is
impossible, he is very probably wrong".
-Clarke’s First Law
The Concept
• Low pressure tube with capsules that move back and forth
throughout the length of the tube.
• Accelerated via a linear magnetic accelerator.
• Supported on a cushion of air.
• Proposed route from Los Angeles to San Fransisco (approx. 560 km).
• To be covered in just 35 minutes, with capsules leaving end stations
every 2 minutes.

Hyperloop

  • 2. The Hyperloop • A concept for a fifth mode of transport after planes, trains, cars and boats. • Cheaper, faster, less environmental footprint. • Inflection point of about 1500 km after which air travel becomes faster and cheaper.
  • 4. Elon Musk Founder of PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity. "When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong". -Clarke’s First Law
  • 5. The Concept • Low pressure tube with capsules that move back and forth throughout the length of the tube. • Accelerated via a linear magnetic accelerator. • Supported on a cushion of air. • Proposed route from Los Angeles to San Fransisco (approx. 560 km). • To be covered in just 35 minutes, with capsules leaving end stations every 2 minutes.
  • 7. The Concorde Part • Streamlined shape reduces drag. • Low pressure in the tube (100 Pa) reduces drag further.
  • 8. Problem of Choked Air Flow • Kantrowitz limit gives the top speed for a given tube to pod area ratio, above which flow will be choked. • Build up of air in front of capsule and subsequent increase in resistance. • Fan and compressor in the front compresses this air and routes it to the rear via a bypass tunnel. • This air expands in the nozzle at the back, also providing additional thrust.
  • 10. The Rail Gun Part • Magnetic linear accelerators present at various locations – rotor on the capsule, stator fixed to the tube. • Route divided into sections with speeds of 300 mph, 555 mph, 760 mph. • Maximum linear acceleration of 1g achieved while accelerating from 300 to 760 mph. • Smaller turning radius implies a lower speed, such that centripetal acceleration is not more than 0.5g.
  • 11. The Air Hockey Table Part
  • 12. The Air Hockey Table Part • Part of the compressed air is rerouted to air bearings. • Known as external pressure (EP) bearing and effective when capsule is stationary or moving at very high speeds. • Each ski is integrated into a mechanical suspension. • 28 such air bearing skis. • Additional lift is provided aerodynamically – front edge is higher than the rear edge (at an angle of 0.05º). • Viscous interactions generate pressure differential to provide lift.
  • 13. Advantages • • • • • • • • Safe Fast Low cost Immune to weather Energy saving Sustainably self-powering Resistant to earthquakes Not disruptive to those along the route
  • 14. Major Concerns • In some parts, total acceleration experienced by the passenger will be more than 1g, taking the resultant of linear and centripetal acceleration. • Commercial aircrafts accelerate at approximately 0.25g, roller coasters at (4-6)g. • Uneven shear stress markings were seen on the outside of the capsule body during simulation. • Suggestion: Air bearings on top of the pod to improve stability and help the pod stay balanced.
