Theoretical predictions of the moments and the force density distributions on the superconducting magnet and on the conducting sheet guideway are given for the reference levitation system design proposed for the Canadian Maglev vehicle. The theoretical method is based on the Lorentz force, and the solution follows from a combination of the dynamic circuit theory and the EM field theory already developed. Very good correlations are found with the moments measurements already published. The data from the predictions are important for vehicular mechanics analysis and for mechanical structural design of fastenings and bracings.
