VR spring constant
WARNING
Requires the Windows Operating System
Requires the 1-DOF Haptic Device (DIY Kit Available)

OBJECTIVES

Haptic Spring Application This application permits to interact with a simple spring element by using a haptic device of 1 DOF and to feel the spring reaction force to displacement imposed by the haptic device. It is possible to demonstrate how the spring constant depends both on the geometric parameters and on the spring material.
