Project: Research - Studentship

Project Details


The aim of this project is to progress a Hyperloop push-through airlock design by numerical simulation. Simulations will be developed by Finite Element Models. Focusing on design by analysis of the sealing veins, these models will investigate the geometry, materials, and the approach velocity of the Hyperloop pod. The produced design and model will allow for a comprehensive feasibility assessment of the push-through airlock architecture, based on its benefits and limitations compared with current Hyperloop airlock concepts.
