Similarly, it is asked, what is the load of a spring?
Spring Load. You have a spring with a free length of 5 inches and your spring rate is of 7.5 pounds of force per inch (lbf/in). This spring needs to reach a solid height of 3 inches, therefore having to travel 2 inches.
Beside above, how do you determine spring rate? To test the spring rate, the spring is placed into a spring rate tester, like shown above, and is pre-compressed one inch (or millimeters if you're using that measurement) and then compressed further to get the measurement for the next inch of compression.
Also Know, how is load rate calculated?
Calculate the hydraulic loading rate with the formula: Hydraulic loading rate = Design flow (gal/day) / Area (feet ^2). Design flow is the volume of waste water per day. Calculate the organic loading with the formula: Organic matter = (BOD5 (mg/l) * 3.785 l/gal) / 453,600 mg/lb.
What is the formula for calculating spring load?
To calculate the distance traveled of your spring you must divide the load by the spring rate. On the other hand, to calculate the working loads, you must multiply the distance traveled by the spring rate.
