Spin-test results are given for two types of composite flywheels, namely, molded disks and rim-type flywheels with chord-wise wrapping. The models differed in form, size, and materials. Dynamic problems associated with flywheel speed-up, ultimate peripheral speeds, and the limiting energy storage capacities are described. Results are also given for full-scale flywheel tests. Dynamic problems were shown to be the governing factors for rim-type flywheels.
