Abstract : The problem of torsional buckling of springs with built-in end conditions is investigated and a theoretical buckling load and buckling shape of the spring are found. The buckling condition is then expressed in terms of acritical windup angle for springs of different wire cross sections. Both circular and rectangular cross sections are investigated. Some test results are given which tend to substantiate both the theoretical buckling load above and the theory of dependence of buckling on the b/h ratio for rectangular cross sections. (Author)
