dc.descriptionAbstract: Understanding the dynamic interaction between a magnetic levitated (Maglev) vehicle and its supporting guideway is essential in the evaluation of the performance of such a system. This interacting coupling, known as vehicle/guideway interaction (VGI), has a significant effect on system parameters such as the required magnetic suspension forces and gaps, vehicular ride quality, and guideway deflections and stresses. This report presents the VGI analyses conducted on an actual Maglev system concept definition (SCD), the American Maglev SCD, using a linear-elastic fmite-element (FE) model. Particular interest was focused on the comparison of the ride quality of the vehicle, using two different suspension systems, and their effect on the guideway structure. The procedure and necessary assumptions in the modeling are discussed.-
