These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJTAMM, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.


Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

  • A CFD Investigation of Nozzle Position Effect and Turbulent Flow Phenomena of a Hyperloop Model   Order a copy of this article
    by Steven Goddard, Yufeng Yao 
    Abstract: This investigation analyses a conceptual Hyperloop model in a low-pressure tube using CFD simulation technique. A precursor validation study, similar to a published work, is adopted, and used as a baseline model to develop a replication of Hyperloop configuration. The study continues with 2D simulations of three rear nozzle positions to identify a low-drag configuration, steady 3D simulations to capture more complex mean flow features, and unsteady 3D simulation to analyse time-dependant flow characteristics. It was found that the lower the rear nozzle position, the better the drag reduction, with an optimal slope angle of 8
