Often, the mathematical modeling of mechanical components leads to a set of nonlinear equations which have to be solved in order to compute the design variables. This paper discusses the performance of six different nonlinear, algebraic-equation solvers useful for machine design problems. Problems from spring design are taken as test cases for the purpose of evaluation.
