Anatomy of a spring

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Desire -

A va­ri­ety of fac­tors have to be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion when cal­cu­lat­ing spring rate (the amount of force re­quired to com­press it). This is rea­son­ably easy to do for a sin­gle-rate spring and even dual-rate ones – pro­gres­sive springs are a lit­tle trick­ier. The tor­sional mo­du­lus of the ma­te­rial has to be con­sid­ered too – that is the amount

it is ca­pa­ble of twist­ing and re­turn­ing.
