I am wanting to build an engine inertia dyno. Finding someone capable of machining and balancing a large diameter flywheel has been difficult. Can anyone tell me if the moment of inertia for a larger flywheel be duplicated using multipe smaller diameter flywheels connected together on the same shaft. Or is there a formula to use to calculate how many and what size I would need to use to duplicate the larger flywheel(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank-you for your responses.
