The Japanese original edition of qFEM for Springsq was published in 1997, to com memorate the 50th anniversary of Japan Society for Spring Research (JSSR). While there have been many books published about Finite Element Method (FEM), this book was among the first to address the application of FEM to spring design. When asked about springs, one might imagine a mere shape of helical coil. How ever, there are many more varieties of shapes and functions in the application of springs. Consequently, some are very difficult to calculate by design formula. FEM gives the solutions to those advanced engineering cases. Nowadays, it is strongly desired to have a design method for springs as a com mon base from a global point of view. Under these circumstances, JSSR planned to publish an English version of qFEM for Springsq. By improving the contents and adding many examples, this book, FEM for Springs, has been brought to comple tion. It is a truly significant event. I am confident that this book is suitable for engineers in worldwide industrial sectors and for college students as well.While there are many books about Finite Element Methods, this is among the first volume devoted to the application of FEM in spring design.
