Helical Spring, Phosphor Bronze, Spring Brass, Carbon Steel


The objective of this study is to design and analyze the performance of helical compression spring. The helical compression spring is used in a shock absorber to absorb the shock and vibrations during tracking. The spring is made up of elastic material to regain its original shape. The spring goes down below its normal height when the weight of the vehicle pushes the spring down. The compressed spring rebound to its normal dimension or original length when the load is removed. For this study the materials of phosphor bronze and spring brass were taken for consideration. The phosphor bronze and spring brass are a non-ferrous copper base alloy material which having a high fatigue resistance, temperature resistance and corrosion resistance. The analysis was done by considering bike loads based on the number of persons seated on bike. As a result, this project highlights static and dynamic behaviors of a helical compression spring. Finally compare this analysis result to ferrous material (Carbon Steel) to find which one is better for make a helical compression spring ferrous material or non-ferrous material.
