Dual Mass Flywheel - Explained

How do cars work? It's a simple question, without a simple answer. That's what this channel is for! You could search the web endlessly for consumable information, or you can watch my simple to understand videos. I'm a graduated mechanical engineer with a passion for cars, and my goal is to help other people passionate about cars learn how they work. Hope you find my videos enjoyable; feel free to ask questions!

How do dual mass flywheels work? What is a dual mass flywheel? DMFs have two masses (really!). The first mass is matched with the engine crank, and it transfers engine torque through springs to another mass, which is connected with the transmission (and clutch housing). The goal is to reduce torsional vibration through the drivetrain, which is particularly useful for diesel engines, low idle speeds, and low cylinder counts.
