1. The 5th mode of transportation
2. This type of technology
was first invented by the
WENGER in the year
Later it was developed
and redesigned by a
billionaire ELON MUSK in
the year 2012.
Hyperloop is a proposed
mode of passenger and
freight transportation by a
joint team of Tesla and
A Hyperloop is a sealed tube
through which a pod may
travel free of air resistance
or friction conveying people
or goods at high speeds and
WHAT IS HYPERLOOP?
4. LOW PRESSURE TUBE
The tube is made of steel. Two tubes will be welded
together side by side configuration to allow the capsules
to travel in both directions.
Pylons are placed for every 30m to support the tube.
Solar arrays will cover the top of the tubes in order to
provide power to the system.
5. CAPSULE Each capsule carries 28
passengers and that travel
along the interior of the
Maximum width - 1.35m
Maximum height - 1.10m
Capsule can travel at a
maximum speed of
1220kmph at 20 degrees
Operating pressure around the capsule is 100pa, such that it
reduces the drag force by 1000 times relative to sea level
A hard vacuum is avoided as vacuums are expensive and
difficult to maintain compared with low pressure solutions.
Capsule can travel at a maximum speed of 1220kmph at 20
Linear accelerators are constructed along the
length of the tube at various locations to accelerate
Stators are located on the capsules to transform
momentum to the capsule via linear accelerators.
8. WORKING PRINCIPLE
An underground or above ground pylon-supported tube will create a "special
environment" — a low pressure system — through which passenger pods will travel
with very little air pressure to slow them down.
An electric air compressor fan on the front of the pod will transfer high air pressure
from its front to the rear and sides of the vessel. This will reduce friction in front of the
pod, help propel it and create an air cushion around it, so that the pod is suspended in
the air within the tube. So-called air bearings — which work on the same basic
principle as an air hockey table — will replace wheels that would not work at the
required high speeds.
Ready when the passenger is ready to travel.
Very fast and time saving.
Sustainable and eco-friendly.
Limited number of passengers can travel.
Design and construction costs are very high.
10. HYPERLOOP IN INDIA
Hyperloop transportation technologies(HTT) bags first
project in India by Andhrapradesh government between
the two cities Amaravathi and Vijayawada.
Connection is expected to bring the travel time down to 5
minutes as opposed to current travel time 1 hour.
