A bending moment is the reaction induced in a structural element when an external force or moment is applied to the element causing the element to bend.
A buckling spring is a type of keyswitch mechanism, popularized by IBM's keyboards for the PC, PC/AT, 5250/3270 terminals, PS/2, and other systems.
A car (or automobile) is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transportation.
In computing, a computer keyboard is a typewriter-style device which uses an arrangement of buttons or keys to act as mechanical levers or electronic switches.
In physics, elasticity (from Greek ἐλαστός "ductible") is the ability of a body to resist a distorting influence and to return to its original size and shape when that influence or force is removed.
A helix, plural helixes or helices, is a type of smooth space curve, i.e. a curve in three-dimensional space.
A mattress is a large, rectangular pad for supporting the reclining body, designed to be used as a bed or on a bed frame, as part of a bed.
Mattress coils, also known as mattress springs, are coil springs used in a mattress.
In materials science, shear modulus or modulus of rigidity, denoted by G, or sometimes S or μ, is defined as the ratio of shear stress to the shear strain: where The derived SI unit of shear modulus is the pascal (Pa), although it is usually expressed in gigapascals (GPa) or in thousands of pounds per square inch (ksi).
A spring is an elastic object that stores mechanical energy.
Suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two.
Timmis was an innovative design of double coiled springs, originally used for railway rolling stock, such as on the Barsi Light Railway c1889, as formulated by Everard Calthrop (1857–1927).
A torsion spring is a spring that works by torsion or twisting; that is, a flexible elastic object that stores mechanical energy when it is twisted.
Upholstery is the work of providing furniture, especially seats, with padding, springs, webbing, and fabric or leather covers.
Upholstery coil springs are an important part of most modern upholstery.
A volute spring is a compression spring in the form of a cone (a volute).
The Wolfram Demonstrations Project is an organized, open-source collection of small (or medium-size) interactive programs called Demonstrations, which are meant to visually and interactively represent ideas from a range of fields.
Young's modulus, also known as the elastic modulus, is a measure of the stiffness of a solid material.
