Abstract

An Aero-levitation Electric Vehicle (AEV) as a Tracked Wing-In-Ground-effect vehicle (TWIG) is proposed as a promising form of next generation transport. The development of the High-speed Ground Transportation System (HGTS) requires the careful consideration of the aerodynamic interaction of the AEV with the Guideway. It is investigated through the following multidisciplinary cooperation: aerodynamic analysis using the potential flow theory and the Navier- Stokes computation, wind-tunnel measurements using the scaled model system, and dynamic simulations for the given flight missions. The recent results from these multidisciplinary studies will be summarized and addressed.
