The Springulator Interface

Compression springs – one load, two load, rate based or dimensional
Fill in the required data and select your material type. App users can turn their device to the horizontal view to see a variety of spring diagrams. Hit the "Calculate" button and the Springulator results screen will automatically appear.
At the bottom of the spring specs, you will see if your spring design falls within the allowable stress ranges for the material you selected. This will help you determine spring functionality. Click the "stress chart" button for a graphical representation of your spring's stresses.
Extension Spring Calculator users can also use our integrated Initial Tension slider to adjust the amount of tension the spring is designed with. Hold and drag the slider, and watch the results in yellow change.
When using our spring calculators, click the "back arrow" in the upper left corner to return to the previous screen.
