I need an equation that calculates the k value of individual leaf springs as a function of material, length, width, and height and any other variables needed. I have seen a calculator that used lenght width and height for them on a website but they want 100 bucks for the license. I searched elsewhere for the equation to solve my dilema and have come up empty handed. Please help me out.

Also I am pretty sure that the k factors for each individual leaf can be added together in parallel to get the total spring rate (k effective = k1+k2+k3+....) but correct me if I am wrong.

1st leaf k-value is 23#/in

2 nd leaf K-value is 32#/in

3rd leaf K-value is 35#/in

4th leaf 35#/in

So the total k for the pack is 125#/in

Thanks
