Title:Static response of stranded wire helical springs

Abstract:A theory for the large, static, axial response of a helical spring formed of a strand of twisted wires is presented. The wires in the strand are assumed to be in frictionless contact with their neighbors throughout the deformation. The response of a typical tension or compression spring is found to be only weakly nonlinear at large spring strain, and relatively insensitive to the type of end condition.
