ABSTRACT: This appendix contains the computer programs for the solution of the equations of motion pertaining to constant speed operation of a magnetically' levitated vehicle over an at-grade guideway, and a summary of the analytical background for the programs; These programs provide the capability for performing stability analyses of vehicles with control functions based on both relative, and absolute measurements at individual coil locations, and for evaluating vehicle response and ride quality characteristics for operations over guideways with irregularities.
