The Strength Characteristics of Helical Springs

CIM Bulletin, 1951


A MECHANICAL SPRING has been .defined by Wahl ( 1) as an elastic body whose primary function is to deflect or distort under load, and which recovers its original shape when released after being distorted. Most material bodies are elastic to some extent and will deform under load, but they are seldom regarded as springs since this is not their primary function.
