winding the composite material around an outer surface of the main dome to form a sub dome that is bonded to the rotor,
wherein any one of the main dome and the sub dome expands in a radial direction of the rotational shaft along with the rotation of the rotational shaft and the rotor to allow the sub dome and the rotor to be maintained at a bonded state there between,
wherein the sub dome includes a first sub dome wound around the outer surface of the main dome and a second sub dome wound around an outer surface of the first sub dome, and the main dome, the first sub dome and the second sub dome have different winding angles from each other, and
wherein the first sub dome has a winding angle smaller than that of the main dome, and the second sub dome has a winding angle smaller than that of the first sub dome.
