The hybrid guideway combines the advantages of concrete and steel construction and is produced in the following main groups.
The maglev guideway technology developed by the Max Boegl group and relevant consulting services were successfully provided for the world’s first commercial maglev line in Shanghai in 2001.
- A solid, rigid prestressed concrete beam was selected as main structure. Its centric pretensioning & prestressing increases its serviceability. The garland shaped tendon wires allow shape accuracy for the load case dead weight.
- Within a steel functional module with a length of 3 m the three essential levels for the system were combined:
Stator level with stator and winding,
Side lead level and gliding level.
- Prestressed concrete beams and functional modules are connected through consoles anchored in concrete.
