This work will demonstrate the development and experimental validation of the stochastic models to predict the composite material’s mechanical and electromagnetic response as a function of the constituent reinforcing materials. First, stochastic micromechanics models will be developed for the case of multiple disparate supporting materials. These micromechanics models will then be validated against traditional finite element models and experimental results over the feasible parameter space. The developed models will then be utilized to define the optimal geometry of the composite flywheel including constraints such as displacement, stress, flux, magnetic field density, and manufacturability.
