SOME ANALYSIS OF GYROIDAL EFFECT AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FLYWHEEL POWERED VEHICLE

Feasibility studies have shown that a flywheel powered vehicle will increase fuel economy under the city driving. So, some designs of a drive train system which has high efficiency and can regenerate braking energy by a flywheel storage unit have been contrived. But the most interesting subject to take up first in a developing flywheel powered vehicle is the analysis of the gyroidal effect affecting the vehicle's motions and durability of equipment.
