Abstract

This study is to find out the possibility of applying the Ferris Wheel concept to vertical transportation system (VTS). Although the engineers have considered different types of VTS and trying to maximum the efficiency, for example, Double Deck Elevator, Miconic 10 elevator system by Schindler, high speed elevator, etc. But do these methods can really help The case study exactly point out the problem. Although there are 8 passenger elevators, efficiency of VTS is very low, passenger use almost one minute for waiting the elevator. Therefore, this study not only tries to find out the possibility of applying the Ferris Wheel concept in VTS, but also try to give a solution for the problem. Some VTS working principles are also introduced here as they can be applied to the proposed system. Actually, not only VTS, system such as railway, roller coaster, their working principle are also similar to the proposed system, but I have not discussed about them in this report in order to restrict the volume to the specified limit. As I have just brought out the idea, I really welcome others doing further development in this topic, and I believe that the proposed system can really help the traditional VTS of the building.
