It’s Spring Time Part 4: Energy Absorption, Natural Frequency, and The Surging Phenomenon

In our last post on the spring series, we examine energy absorption, natural frequency, and the surging phenomenon. When you apply a load on the spring, deflection (deformation) occurs in accordance with Hooke’s law. (See [Fig.1].) When you quickly release ...

It’s Spring Time Part 3: Load-Deflection Relationships

We’ve been introduced to materials and characteristics of springs. Let’s dive into helical springs more deeply specifically compression and extension springs. Their load deflection relationships will be evaluated for both. Load-Deflection Relationship for Helical Compression Springs When the load on ...
