Anyone have any insight into how to model one of these types of Springs? Know where I could find some good equations for this? Thanks
Do a search. This has been discussed a number of times and several people have come up with workable models. Try "Wave Spring" or "Wavy Washer" or some such as search terms.
I suspect that you will have some problems because SW doesn't like the "zero thickness" along the line where wave crests meet. A multi-body part can get rid of that problem.
I am really not creating this spring just the contour of the spring on another part to use for something else.
I down loaded this file from here.
Does anyone have a pdf of the equations to use for this. A reference point for the equations? Thanks in advance for any help.
Hmm. just curious where everyone got the equation from. Thanks
I need a solid body with a wavy contour on the top of the solid body. Need help with this one. Thanks
