  • New test environment will enable high-speed flywheels to be engineered for safety

    06 July 2015

    The Ricardo-led ‘FlySafe’ research collaboration – involving a range of leading industrial and academic partners including the University of Brighton’s Centre for Automotive Engineering – has delivered a highly innovative flywheel safety test environment to enable the development of next-generation flywheel energy storage systems.

    The FlySafe project is investigating the potential failure mechanisms and behaviours of high-speed flywheel systems. Operating at extremely high rotational speeds, these systems offer a highly practical and potentially cost-effective mechanical means of saving fuel and reducing carbon emissions through the mechanical storage and reuse of energy in applications such as regenerative braking. The FlySafe research aims to provide best-practice design guidelines for the safety containment systems of ...
