  • The extensional-torsional dynamic response of helical springs caused by forced displacements is discussed in this paper. The general solution to the equations of motion is first derived using the method of Laplace transform. Closed-form solutions are then obtained for harmonic excitations. The solutions show that two types of periodic waves will propagate through the structure, one characterizing the extensional-compressive deformation and the other, the torsional deformation. The steady and transient motions of the vibration are studied in detail in the analysis. © 1992.
