Railway equipment with which vehicles are kept in a hovering position

Abstract

The invention concerns the suspension of the emergency element at the vehicle of a magnetically levitated railway. On loss of the magnetic field keeping the vehicle hovering, the emergency elements are suspended on the rail arrangement. The suspension should limit the impact of the emergency elements to the smallest possible physical force. According to the invention the suspension consists of a spring-damper combination with a linear spring characteristic and a damper with a square law characteristic. The conditions which the spring constants, damper parameters and maximum spring force must satisfy, are laid down in suitable formulae.
