What does it mean to calculate load and stress?

It is important to know the limits of a given spring before the spring is put into service in an industrial environment. Calculating load and stress is a way to determine the point of failure for a spring, including Belleville disc springs. Simply put, it’s a way to determine how much force (load) and how much stretch (stress) the spring can bear before it fails.

Load and stress performance may be altered by stacking Belleville disc springs. Our engineers provide assistance with Belleville design questions, such as load and stress calculation.
