...I don't know the data for comfortable vertical acceleration, especially if the passengers aren't allowed to stand up or walk in the vehicle. From the drawings, the seats look very inclined back, passengers are almost laid down...
I have attached the ride quality specifications for the National Maglev Initiative. They did not consider reclining passengers who could not stand, so this is a novel area. Most likely astronaut requirements do not apply either. _________________ Retired. Former Maglev Chief Scientist for the U.S. Federal Railroad Administration
