That would be insane to model Maglev trains. They would need a special track and everything. This would be very cool if some day we were able to model Maglev trains though! :thumbsup:It must be Maglev, although it did not say in the article... I wonder if in the future we will be modeling Maglev trains?
They make them for performance.I'm actually surprise to see the significant differences in aerodynamic cab-style design. Makes me wonder how much wind-tunnel or CFD work they're doing, vs. how much is simply "shoot from the hip and make it look cool".
Not quite buying that, Pete. Sure, there may be some difference in the expected top speed, but in proportion to the length of the train and the "Reynolds Number" of air flow across it, I have a hard time believing that each would be tailored to such a substantially different shape. The Reynolds Numbers are too close to have that much of an impact.The difference in the streamlining is in the expected max speed of the train. The faster the sleeker. pete
