Hyperloop: Not so fast! 28

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Hyperloop: Not so fast! This week Matt Brauer is back to describe work he did to analyze the trajectory of the Hyperloop proposal. This is a key input to the Hyperloop Simulink models we are building. Matt's conclusion is surprising: From the perspective of geographic constraints and rider comfort, the 760 mph peak speed is... read more >>

Hyperloop Model Architecture: We want your feedback! 5

Posted by Guy Rouleau,

Hyperloop Model Architecture: We want your feedback! We had some fun in our last post about the Hyperloop open source transportation system, but we didn't get much into the specifics. This week we begin to move things forward. Before beginning to analyze the feasibility of individual components, we decided to think about how we would architect a Simulink... read more >>
