How to Calculate Spring rate required for coilover given desired droop and motion ratio?
Spring rate required for coilover given desired droop and motion ratio calculator uses Stiffness of Spring = Corner sprung mass of vehicle*Acceleration due to Gravity/(Motion ratio in suspension*Wheel travel*cos(Angle of spring/shock absorber from vertical)) to calculate the Stiffness of Spring, The Spring rate required for coilover given desired droop and motion ratio is the amount of force required to cause unit deflection of spring at one particular corner of the vehicle. Stiffness of Spring is denoted by k symbol.
How to calculate Spring rate required for coilover given desired droop and motion ratio using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Spring rate required for coilover given desired droop and motion ratio, enter Corner sprung mass of vehicle (W_{cs}), Acceleration due to Gravity (g), Motion ratio in suspension (M.R.), Wheel travel (W.T.) & Angle of spring/shock absorber from vertical (θ) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Spring rate required for coilover given desired droop and motion ratio calculation can be explained with given input values -> 6656.509 = 50*9.8/(0.85*0.1*cos(0.5235987755982)).
