Future tunnel communication

driven with compressed air and with electro-magnetic resonance substations

Man is constantly aiming at faster and cheap individual and collective transport. Future individual transport at short distances up to 100-200 km will only be realised using electric buses and cars, while long distances will be covered using tunnel communication. Imagine e.g. cylindrical tunnels of diameter 10 m, see fig. 1, and integrated one by one, to the number of e.g. 21 tubes, underwater communication routes. In the tunnels there will be cigar-shaped vehicles, fig. 1a and b, of length approximately 100 m. These vehicles will move on electromagnetic cushions, powered with two systems. The first drive system is the air pressure obtained from the braking process, fig. 1 c1, which will also provide dynamic start of the vehicle, fig. 1 b. Start, vehicle acceleration with compressed air and braking on the terminal station on air being compressed, which will be used to start and accelerate the vehicles e.g. between Europe and America, etc. In other words, start and acceleration given to the vehicle for the first time, where it will be pushed and accelerated from behind with compressed air 100A, pumped from the front of the vehicle to the vacuum condition, until the velocity of 1500 km/h is obtained. The energy given once with compressed air, necessary for start, will always be used in the process of braking on air being compressed at every station and stored in a parallel siding closed with bulkheads, fig. 2 c, and returned in the process of start, fig. 2 C1, and acceleration. It is also possible that the energy given once in the start process will in the braking process compress the air, which will drive a vehicle starting in the opposite direction at the terminal station, etc. Between the tunnels, at the top, large tubular service tunnels with air will be installed, which in accordance with the Archimedes' principle will constitute in total a firm structure. The whole will be submerged at 50 m below the surface of the sea (ocean) water, where there is calm even during a strong storm. The whole is so balanced and calculated with compressed air in the service tubes that it remains precisely at the depth of 50 m below the water surface. After achieving the velocity of 1500 km/h within 7 minutes, the vehicle obtains further acceleration thanks to vacuum and through the second type of drive, magnetic resonance substations, which are installed initially at 1,500 km/h respectively every 100, 200, 300 for further acceleration, and at the velocity of 12,000 km/h every 500 km to maintain the optimal travelling velocity of e.g. 12,000 km/h. Braking on air being compressed is calculated so that it begins at this extremely high velocity already at 300 km before the terminal station, and the air being compressed from the braking process is directed to the back of a starting vehicle. The vehicle may take on board as many as 10,000 passengers and cover the route from Europe to the USA within less than one hour. Same communication systems will be installed on land using the cut-and-cover method, shallow below the ground with service tubes, and in proportionally smaller 3 versions depending on the distances and needs. Any tunnel tubes in the zones of starting and braking, and sidings – compressed air storages in the land section must be carefully reinforced, because the pressure of air giving acceleration to the vehicle will be very high, reaching even 100 A. Whereas vacuum tunnels at the target travelling velocity of 12,000 km/h should be firm but lightweight, e.g. executed with domination of carbon fibre. Local communication will also be provided by electric water communication driven with electric current drawn from the above mentioned ecological power plants powered with water current in rivers, sea wave and wind.
