Test track design for HyperloopTT
sbp 08.03.2018

schlaich bergermann partner is honored to take part in the development of an innovative transportation system bringing airplane speeds to ground level.

The HyperloopTT system is an ultra-high-speed transportation system in which passengers or goods can travel in capsules between cities by transforming journey time from hours to minutes.

In close collaboration with HyperloopTT and MAD Architects we are currently working on the conceptual design of a Hyperloop test track located at Francazal Airport near Toulouse, France. We are developing the bridge tube concepts. Pressurized capsules are floating on magnetic cushions within the tubes and therefore have a crucial impact on the whole structural design. Structural analysis and preliminary dimensions are under current development.
