    Spring Connectors

    Ryan Hevner
      I'd like to define stiffness values of a spring connector in polar coordinates with respect to an axis.

      I desire the following stiffness values
      K axial
      K radial
      K tangential

      In other words, instead of having the stiffness constant in the shear plane I need to separate it into two components (radial and tangential).

      See the attached picture.
