An exciting new concept in transportation took one step toward reality in June of 2015 with the announcement of an Hyperloop Pod Design Competition. The Technical University of Munich (TUM) accepted the challenge and went to work immediately. ROHACELL® plays a key role in forming the pod’s main beam that is built as a sandwich-design composite using a ROHACELL® foam core to optimize the part’s strength and stiffness.
