Hi, I cant figure out how to calculate forces exerted by a leaf spring. The spring is made out of an 0.3mm sheet of s.s 302 and is bent to the shape of the letter Z with another half circle bend in one of the Z's ends, the other flat end is fixed and i want to calculate what force the springs exerts at a given deflection of the spring. The external force on the spring is at the end of the spring with the half circle. A drawing is attached. Thanks, Assaf.
