my name is Phuong Nguyen, and I am a student at San Diego State University, San Diego, California, USA. Our civil engineering design class is doing a presentation on the feasibility of having a tram system in downtown San Diego. Do you happen to have any information on the initial cost and estimate operating cost for such a system? i.e. cost of a tram, cost per mile of rail and cable line etc.
I am studying mechanical engineering at Edinburgh University and as part of a transport project I am researching the efficiency of urban vehicles such as trams from an aerodynamic design point of view. I can't find any information on your website relating to this issue, e.g. drag coefficients or more general information in this area. Can you help?
I am currently in my fourth year at Southampton University, studying
Civil Engineering, and we have recently been giving our Group Design Project. This
project consists of writing a feasibility report on introducing trams back
into the Southampton area.
An area which I have been assigned with gathering information with, is with regards to the power the trams require, and the overhead line system used.
I was wondering if you could shed any light on the issue of how much power the heritage tram is likely to require, and the best method of acquiring this power.
I am currently studying for a BSc (Hons) Degree in Construction Engineering at Napier University. My honours project is to design a prestressed bridge suitable for a tram network. As part of this, I am currently investigating the proposed tram system to be installed in Edinburgh. I would there for be extremely grateful if you could forward to me some technical details of the tram systems that you supply, in particular I am interested in the city class tram and its axial loads. If you need to clarify anything please do not hesitate to contact me.
Do you happen to know how long a stretch of track you would need to drive a tram up to 30mph and then bring it to a complete stop?
I have a general enquiry relating to trams and light rail and was hoping you may be able to help. When setting up a tram network in a city is it necessary to provide a dedicated test track to train drivers and/or test vehicles, or are these needs generally met by the actual network. Thank you very much in advance for your help on this matter.
