Abstract:

This report describes a research project to investigate the advantages, disadvantages and construction techniques of three composite flywheel designs. The three designs are based on fabricating the flywheels from unidirectional prepreg fiberepoxy tape. The designs studied were circumferential-wound, radial-wound, and radial-wrapped core. For each design, construction techniques and geometric design parameters, such as tape width, length, angle of wrap and flywheel diameter, were developed. Author
