Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical investigation of the coupled extensional-torsional vibration of helical springs. The study shows that two types of periodic wave will propagate through the spring, one characterizing the extensional-compressive deformation and the other one, the torsional deformation. The shapes of the individual waves are simple, but the oscillation of the spring is complex due to the interaction and superposition of the component waves.
