Keynote: Designing the EPFLoop Hyperloop Pod Using Simulation

In a keynote presentation at the COMSOL Conference 2018 Lausanne, the EPFLoop team talks about how they used simulation to create a pod prototype for the SpaceX 2018 Hyperloop Pod Competition. With modeling, they designed the aeroshell and validated the stability system of the pod, braking system, and carbon fiber components.

The EPFLoop team aims to advance Hyperloop technology and is made up of professors and students at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). During the SpaceX 2018 Hyperloop Pod Competition, the team finished third overall and first in safety and reliability.
