Title
(EN) TUBE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS USING A GASEOUS MIXTURE OF AIR AND HYDROGEN
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE TRANSPORT PAR TUBE UTILISANT UN MÉLANGE GAZEUX D'AIR ET D'HYDROGÈNE
Abstract
(EN)
A tubular transportation system is disclosed for transporting one or more passengers or one or more cargos via a capsule along a predetermined route. The tubular transportation system has: (1) a plurality of substantially evacuated tubes arranged along the predetermined route, where each tube is maintained at a pressure that is below atmospheric pressure; and (2) means for maintaining within each tube in the plurality of substantially evacuated tubes, a gaseous composition comprising a mixture of a first percentage, x, of hydrogen and a second percentage, (100-x), of air, and wherein the first percentage, x, of hydrogen is picked based on a predetermined power value and a leak rate associated with the tube.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de transport tubulaire permettant de transporter un ou plusieurs passagers ou un ou plusieurs chargements par l'intermédiaire d'une capsule le long d'un itinéraire prédéfini. Le système de transport tubulaire comprend : (1) une pluralité de tubes sensiblement sous vide disposés le long de l'itinéraire prédéfini, chaque tube étant maintenu à une pression qui est inférieure à la pression atmosphérique ; et (2) un moyen permettant de maintenir, à l'intérieur de chaque tube dans la pluralité de tubes sensiblement sous vide, une composition gazeuse comprenant un mélange d'un premier pourcentage, x, d'hydrogène et d'un second pourcentage, (100-x), d'air, et le premier pourcentage, x, d'hydrogène étant prélevé sur la base d'une valeur de puissance prédéfinie et de fuites associées au tube.
