Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-084
Budget: 06/15/04 - 12/15/04

A test plan for fatigue and residual strength for composite flywheel rotors can be rationally devised using master curves derived from time-temperature superposition principle. Validity of this plan will be demonstrated in Phase I using our theory and limited number of spin tests. Instead of S-N curves, this methodology forms a generic durabil...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Stanford University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

70889 Lightweight, high performance carbon or carbon/glass hybrid blades could significantly improve wind turbine performance if three main hurdles could be overcome: the high cost of carbon fibers, inadequate durability, and the difficulty in designing hybrid materials. This project will combine failure analysis and durability analysis ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-035
Budget: 06/25/01 - 09/26/03

Composite flywheel rotors can achieve high performance with new design and manufacturing methods. This is done through novel hybridization of all hoop wound rotors and one stage cure without wrinkles. The rotors will be inspected before static, fatigue and spin tests. The predicted burst speed will be compared with spin test data. A flywheel...
