In addition, the procedure ultimately greatly simplifies the design procedure since once a small computer program has been developed to carry out the computations, input data consists only of the lengths, widths, and depths of the rail and stretcher, the MOE of the rail and of the stretcher, the modulus of rigidity of the rail, and the spring loads.
