Effective stiffness of the spring system

(Strength of Materials – Er. R.K. Rajput)

The stiffness of the system is used to calculate the deflection of the entire system.

springs in parallel: the effective stiffness of the spring system is calculated by adding all the stiffness values of the individual springs.

springs in series: the effective stiffness of the spring system is calculated by adding the reciprocal of the stiffness values of the individual springs.
