Hyperloop






  • in Europe, we all have made bad experiences, when the first railways have been built in the middle of the 19th century - all private

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________
  • and when we later were forced to make them public - under very high costs

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • we should avoid those mistakes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • because the interesting routes (motor-highways, railways) are state-owned

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • this transportation system should be built and managed as a public good (or most of it)

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • different systems should be developed (possibly divided into local traffic and long-distance traffic)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • the energy efficiency compared with our present systems (car, railway, aeroplane) is just incomprehensible

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • because the current concepts are very, very conclusive

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • we should consider to use these transportation system instead of cars, trains and planes

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • therefore, existing motor-highways and railways would only be available to this new systems

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • the transition from the vacuum tube to the railway station is a technical problem

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • but it is more important, how this public space will be designed

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • to become visited with pleasure (enough space and Internet)

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • it can be designed very modern (but not too much shops)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • the massive pillars made of concrete (every 30 meters) would be an insult against our nature

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • maybe they could be replaced with lighter structures

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • all in all the really important questions are: how will this new system be administered

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • and what goals should be achieved

what you need to know about Hyperloop
- Engadget: LINK ¤ ENGADGET

_________________________________________

  • "pushing people around like parcels in a mail tube. That's what Hyperloop is:"

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "a series of vacuum tubes that enable travelers to get from A to B in minutes rather than hours"

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "remember those vacuum tube networks that businesses used to send papers across large buildings ?"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "Hyperloop is basically that, but big enough to shoot people cross-country at amazing speeds"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "first, the tube is six feet wide, and is maintained as a low-pressure environment, though not a true vacuum"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "in order to prevent the passenger pod from touching the tube, it floats slightly above it, either on a cushion of air or using magnetic levitation"

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "in many ways, Hyperloop is just a sort of maglev train. But because it doesn't have to deal with as much air resistance, top speeds are much higher"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "it is expected to hit 750 mph, more than twice as fast as the Central Japan Railway's record-breaking 366 mph speed run"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "if a network of Hyperloop tubes were built across the United States, it would effectively eliminate the domestic short-haul airline industry"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "for example, if you want to get from New York to Washington, DC, it takes you just under three hours on Amtrak's Acela Express - which is what passes for high-speed rail in the US"

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "you could also take a flight, which would take an hour and 15 minutes, plus the time spent at security, the gate, and baggage claim"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "that same journey with Hyperloop is expected to take just half an hour"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "it was the amount of money thrown at California's high-speed railway project (US$ 70 billion) that prompted Elon Musk to launch the Hyperloop idea"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "he felt that the technology was outdated, the costs too high and the speed insufficient for a modern, 21st-century transport system"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "in his original outline, Hyperloop will be cheaper for several reasons, including the fact that governments don't need to purchase land to make it happen"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "instead, it will be held in the air by a series of pylons so small that they could sit in the median strip of a major highway"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "very quickly, two Los Angeles-based players emerged, ready for the challenge and going by infuriatingly similar names: Hyperloop Transportation Technologies and its main rival, Hyperloop Technologies"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "Quay Valley is a "new town": located halfway between San Francisco and LA, Quay Valley is slated to run entirely on renewable, sustainable technology and house 75,000 people by the early 2020s"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "it signed a deal with HTT to host a five-mile test loop that will encircle the community"

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "this will be used as a proving ground to refine the technology, as well as convey residents from one end of the city to the other in just 80 seconds"

  • "the first proposed Hyperloop, a vacuum tube intended to speedily shoot passengers at 800 mph from city to city, was in 2013:"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "to create a mechanism of transportation that could get folks from San Francisco to Los Angeles in under 30 minutes"

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "HTT (Elon Musk, Tesla cars) is one of two startups to take on the task since then"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "the company aims to create a system traveling faster than the speed of sound at a potential 760 mph, and a lower construction cost than "any existing, and yet proposed railway projects""

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "it shared some renderings to show what this system will look like in Quay Valley"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "construction on the test track begins this year, with analysis of the speed and optimizing the route happening in 2017. Actual passengers should be able to hop on board by 2018"

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "questions that need to be addressed are: how this type of rapid acceleration might affect the human body"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "deceleration techniques, and how to manage traffic"

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "of course, the biggest question is how to win over city and county governments to allow construction of the structures"

what is a Hyperloop ?
- HTT
: LINK ¤ H T T

_________________________________________

  • "traveling as fast as the speed of sound, the Hyperloop will be faster than today's conventional methods of transportation"

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "and completely self sufficient"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "solar panels placed along the track produce excess amounts of the energy that is actually required to run the system"

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "the climate controlled capsule travels inside of a reinforced "tube" pathway", weather independent and earthquake safe thanks to the use of pylons"

 

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "the construction costs are much lower than any existing. It utilizes existing infrastructure thanks to the use of these pylons"

 

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "and therefore it has affordable fares"

  • "the Hyperloop is a high-speed transportation system"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors"

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "it sends specially designed "capsules" or "pods" through a continuous steel tube maintained at a partial vacuum"

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "each capsule floats on a 0.5-to-1.3-millimetre (0.02 to 0.05 in) layer of air provided under pressure to air-caster "skis""

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "thus avoiding the use of maglev while still allowing for speeds that wheels cannot sustain"

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "linear induction motors located along the tube will accelerate and decelerate the capsule to the appropriate speed for each section of the tube route"

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "with rolling resistance eliminated and air resistance greatly reduced, the capsules are theorized to be able to glide for the bulk of the journey"

 

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "an electrically driven inlet fan and air compressor will be placed at the nose of the capsule in order to actively transfer high pressure air from the front to the rear of the vessel"

 

 

 

_________________________________________

  • "the costs are very low, because the routes are publicly-owned"
