The research team built a Pod with an ultra-rigid concrete pipe system, which was also presented at the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. Within 4.5 seconds, they created a partial vacuum in our concrete segment, whose special mass helps to dampen vibrations. In addition to the Pod, a research team at the TU Munich with 15 students is investigating the Hyperloop concept in terms of feasibility, sustainability and cost-effectiveness. An impressive achievement by the young research team!
We congratulate the winners and are pleased to have been able to support the students in their research project with our ultra-resistant concrete pipes!
