Abstract : This paper is concerned with the analysis of Hertzian impact of a band-supported, thick-rim flywheel against an elastic containment ring. The following topics are addressed: consideration of probable failure mode of the flywheel, estimation of impact velocity, prediction of maximum conditions at contact, prediction of the maximum bending stress in the impulsively loaded containment ring, and sample calculation for a proposed containment ring.
