Abstract : Our objectives for the 1980 Symposium are similar to those of the two previous meetings: (1) To provide a forum for the exchange of information and the stimulation of new ideas concerned with the development of the technology and its application in the commercial sector; and (2) To offer an opportunity for interested persons to become familiar with the technology and its potential for facilitating energy substitution and conservation. In this context, several papers present the basics of flywheel technology and its implementation, while others describe the progress and status of technical programs. Still others present new topics for possible future development. Flywheel uses and materials such as ground transportation, mining cars, energy storage for home and farm, composite materials, hydraulic equipment, composite structures, mechanical properties, design criteria, etc. are discussed.
