By combining the reasoning design of the expert system with the analysis and calculation of spring based on a mathematical model and its optimal design, an intelligent spring CAD system has been established. The expert system technique is adopted for such non-calculating designing steps as the selection of scheme, the determination of parameters as well as for the development of the technological process, thus greatly strengthening the original CAD system of springs. This paper provides a detailed description of the function, structure, characteristic features and significance of the said system.
