A new leaf spring builder lets engineers graphically build a detailed model of a multi-leaf spring by specifying spring characteristics such as the leaf profile (tapered or straight leafs), location of rebound clip attachments, type of spring eyes (up-turned, down-turned and Berlin), and the inter-leaf friction and contact properties.
