Extract from back cover of book:

Engineers, professional or amateur, often find designing springs difficult due to the number of variables and the complexity of the formulae. This book introduces the designer to charts and nomograms which greatly simplify the process.

Tubal Cain draws on several decades of experience in the actual processes and covers the design and manufacture of compression and extension coil springs, simple and compound leaf springs, torsion spr!ngs and torsion bars, springs relying on bending actions and a useful graphical method of designing valve springs for IC engines.
