ISSUE WITH TORSION SPRING IN MOTION 2008

Discussion created by Jamie Myrhum on Nov 29, 2007
I'm running a spring hinge in Cosmos Motion 2008 & I have encountered an unusal, what I presume to be an error, in the program. The torsion spring seems to multiply the spring factor by roughly 5.8. I have set up the problem several ways and have gotten the same result. A spring with a constant of 0.01 lbf-in/deg and 125 deg free angle is generating roughly 71.6 in-lbf at the highest loading (125 deg). It should be generating 1.25 in-lbf. Is this an error anyone else is able to generate?
