What is a Hyperloop?
Proposed by Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX
New form of transportation that will consist of a pod traveling in a
low pressured tube on a frictionless surface at speeds near Mach 1.
The mission of team Hyperlynx is to design and manufacture a Hyperloop pod
demonstrating the safety, stability and feasibility of the Hyperloop system.
Building a half size pod
14 feet long
4 feet wide
The pod will be compete in a
proof of concept competition at
SpaceX headquarters in June
Over 200 teams
1 mile long straight test track
5 feet diameter tube
𝑉 𝑉 = Relative Speed
𝐶 C = Speed of Sound
Mass Flow in the Hyperloop
Five Control Volumes
𝑅𝑒 > 4
Primary function is to decrease
mass flow rate around the pod to
avoid choked flow
• Also provides compressed air
to the air bearings
• Efficiencies up to 90%
• Capable of high mass flow
Mass Flow Rate into Compressor
Mass flow rate into
compressor to avoid choked
Mass flow rate (kg/s)
