Design to Physical Dimensions

Required Information: Wire Size, Outside Diameter or Hole Size OR Inside Diameter or Rod Size, Free Length, Number of Coils (Active / Inactive), Ends Configuration, Solid Height Requirements.

In addition to the general considerations (in the previous sections) the following information must be calculated:

Spring Rate

Spring rate is generally defined between 20% and 80% of the available deflection where it is linear.
