Let us start by taking provisional values for Land b, the half-length and breadth respectively of the leaf springs, as large as can conveniently be accommodated, and calculating a suitable thickness d. 11b shows a section of the scales with the load P over the centre of the springs. 11c) it is seen that there is a shear force P/2 and zero bending moment at the centre of each leaf spring. Each half spring can thus be taken as a cantilever of length L with a load of P/2 at the tip. 24 mm. Now calculate the deflection 8, using the expression for a uniform cantilever of length L with a load P at its tip: 40 FORM.

We should decide which pair are going to fit together, probably those at A, and make a definite gap at B. 1 (b) Enlargement round X Abutment of bush and casing The next point to consider is over what area we want the surfaces to touch. It is difficult and so expensive to keep a 'flat' surface flat right into the corner, and sharp corners produce high stress concentrations. 1b). It would be expensive and pointless to make the casing fit into this fillet, so we provide the casing with a chamfer which bridges the fillet.

The parallel leaf spring arrangement has this great virtue, that the central deflection is almost independent of load position: one useful way of looking at this is that it has the kinematic property that when depressed the platform moves down without tilting. It has one degree of freedom very nearly, a pure vertical translation without rotation. This kinematic property is shared by most weighing machines, but not by the traditional balance with its hanging pans. If we were to use the strain in the springs as a measure of weight, by means of resistance strain gauges, we should have to choose a pattern of positions for those gauges which was hlsensitive to where the load was on the platform, and this is an interesting exercise but not a difficult one.
