FORWARD THINKING

The origin of Ryerson’s International Hyperloop Team (RIHT) begins in the summer of 2015, while the

team’s founding member Graeme Klim was working as a returning summer intern at aircraft landing

system designer and manufacturer Safran Landing Systems. Graeme had already

finished a 16-month work placement at Safran Landing Systems a year prior as a design and analysis engineering intern and

closely followed SpaceX through social media outlets when he heard about the competition opportunity

last summer.

 

With a strong working knowledge of the design of aircraft landing systems, Graeme knew exactly how

he could contribute to the subsystem design for a Hyperloop pod after SpaceX announced the reality of

a Hyperloop student competition in the summer of 2015.

 

At the start of his Masters term in September, Graeme connected with his peers Moeid Elahi

(analysis leader) and Min Adhikari (electronics and controls leader), and work colleagues Clement Rodrigues

and Steve Amberg at Safran Landing Systems, to pitch his idea of starting a Hyperloop subsystem team. The

group officially started in September 2015 with the addition of one more team member, Graeme and Moeid's

thesis advisor Dr. Seyed Hashemi, who assumed the role as team supervisor.

 

In January 2016, Ryerson’s Hyperloop deployable wheel system won the team the “Subsystem Innovation

Award” at the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition at Texas A&M University and the team is now getting

ready to compete in the final phase of the competition early next year.

 

The team consisted of a group of seven graduate students who are dedicated to the detailed design,

analysis, manufacturing and promotion of the award winning concept: the Hyperloop

deployable wheel system.
