Scientists Meet Scientists – Wednesday Coffee Talk by Gabriele Semino on "Inside the Hyperloop Vision: From a Student Competition to a Full-Scale System"

Professor Ernst Rank and the TUM-IAS team invite the scientists of TUM and their guests for coffee each Wednesday. Just come over to the TUM-IAS after lunch between 1:00–2:00 pm and have a coffee with us, meet other scientists and listen to a short talk (10-15 mins) on a recent major TUM publication or issue – aimed specifically at a non-expert audience.

On November 13, Gabriele Semino (TUM-Hyperloop) will talk about “Inside the Hyperloop Vision: From a Student Competition to a Full-Scale System”. As Chairman of the Association Board he will present, how the Hyperloop can become a safe, affordable and sustainable means of transport for the future. For this vision, the TUM Hyperloop Research Team is at the same time exploring the Hyperloop concept for feasibility, sustainability and cost-effectiveness. They built a further pod with a functioning levitation system, which they presented in Los Angeles in summer this year at the competition along with the associated ultra-rigid concrete tube system.
