Abstract

Vacuum Train refers to a proposed means of high speed long-haul transportation involving the use of Magnetic Levitation Trains in an evacuated tunnel. Our project was aimed at investigating the idea in more detail and quantifying some of the challenges involved. Although, several studies on similar ideas exist, a consolidated report documenting all past research and approaches involved is missing. Our report was an attempt to fill some of the gaps in these key research areas.
