Abstract:

An analytical and experimental program was conducted to determine the feasibility of high-performance flywheels utilizing wound-filament construction. Principal accomplishments were Defined the effects of material properties and proportions on flywheel stress distribution, Established the need for elastomeric matrix materials Established flywheel design criteria, Defined flywheel loss and run-down characteristics, Defined representative flywheel energy-densities, Demonstrated fabrication of good quality fiberglasselastomer windings in small scale, and Demonstrated peripheral speed of 1850 ftsec with a fiberglassresin rim.
