Masterclass 1: Hardt Hyperloop – European Hyperloop Center in Groningen/Netherlands

Masterclass 2: Eurotube – Innopark Zürich/Switzerland 

A platform to build a hyperloop value chain – EuroTube’s ecosystem approach

Building a continent wide unified hyperloop infrastructure will involve thousands of products from hundreds of companies in different engineering sectors, most of which have so far never heard of hyperloop. EuroTube’s approach is to bring new industry players from different fields to the table and identify and qualify standard products and applications from the industry that can be adapted to hyperloop thereby spreading the topic of hyperloop and creating a supply chain. In the Master Class we want to discuss strategies to bring more companies into the hyperloop field and build a critical mass of industry players that will enable a hyperloop ecosystem to emerge from which the new infrastructure can be built.

Masterclass 3: TUM Hyperloop – Munich/Germany

“Lessons Learned from Building a Passenger Hyperloop Demonstrator”

In Juli 2023 TUM Hyperloop unveiled the first passenger-sized hyperloop demonstrator in Europe, which is certified by TÜV Süd for passenger operations and was used for first crewed test runs in a vacuum environment. Since then, the team has performed a number of tests and validated some key assumptions, leading to an updated technical concept and testing strategy. In this Masterclass the results of this analysis with regard to technical, operational and safety aspects as well as their impact on future hyperloop development and testing will be discussed.

Masterclass 6: Tata Steel meets TU Delft

“Development of sustainable infrastructure for Hyperloop”

Hyperloop has the potential to be completely green in the operational phase. However, the construction of the many km’s of Hyperloop tube may have a large environmental impact. Current EU policy requires us to construct CO2 neutral and fully circular by 2050, which is a big challenge. In this talk, a new research project will be presented in which universities and industrial parties will cooperate to develop sustainable infrastructure. In phase 1 of the project, different structural concepts will be analyzed in terms of the following aspects:
– functional performance
– potential to integrate sustainable materials and CO2 footprint (and other relevant footprints)
– reuse & recyclability potential
– ease of maintenance
– ease of construction
– cost
– potential to meet strict tolerances
Subsequently, the best-performing concept (with green materials integrated) will be researched and optimized in the project, both from the structural and from the material behaviour point of view. Specific attention will be given to the long-term performance. Opportunities for universities, industry partners and other stakeholders to get involved in the project will be highlighted in the talk.
